Hummus As Salad Dressing? You Bet!
Pitas are those great little pockets that are delicious when filled with salads or dipped in hummus. But turn those pitas into crispy chips, toss them in a salad, and they make a crunchy alternative to croutons.
Whenever I have hummus it's usually as an appetizer or condiment. It's a wonderful dip for vegetables or warm pita bread and also serves as the perfect spread when filling those little pita pockets. But I'd never considered using the hummus as a base for a salad dressing until my local Ralphs supermarket made the suggestion. It was so easy and such a nice alternative to my standard ranch or Italian dressing, I had to try it out. The end result had the same consistency as a Ceasar dressing but had the flavor of my favorite artichoke hummus. I added some pita chips and a few garbanzo beans and turned my standard pita sandwich into a wonderful dinner salad with half the carbs.
