del.icio.us recipe of the week - hummus dressing

I have the world's largest container of hummus in my fridge right now.


That's 908 grams baby - just over 2 pounds of hummus.

Having parents with a Costco membership is both a blessing and a curse.

I'm eating it as fast as I can. Scott is helping a little, but he doesn't like hummus as much as I do. I was beginning to wonder if I was going to have to throw most of it away. And then last night before I started dinner I remembered that Kalyn had posted about salad dressing made of hummus in the summer. Brilliant! Exactly what I needed.

The dressing is incredibly simple - hummus, olive oil, lemon juice and salt and pepper. I also added a couple of tablespoons of water to make the dressing a bit thinner.

I used the dressing on a salad of baby romaine lettuce, and chopped tomato, kalamata olives and peppers.

Hummus dressing - not just a pretty face. Full of vitamin C, iron, protein and fiber.

Recipe: Hummus Dressing.

I love Sabra! It's the best pre-made hummus out there.

Ah, mine's the same size. I do love the stuff. Yes, I saw Kalyn's hummus dressing, now I'll probably make it! Reminders are always good.

Mmm ... I love hummus! I must have missed it when Kalyn posted it earlier in the summer. Thanks for posting about it ... I'll have to give it a try!

Hmmm, I have a trip planned to Costco tomorrow - I wonder if they sale the big things of hummus at my Costco!! I'm not even sure if my husband has even ever had hummus before, so this could be fun!
