|Garden Salad with Hummus Dressing
My new favorite dressing for a salad is really simple and yummy if you like Hummus, because it is made with Hummus! It is so simple to make; all you need is Hummus, a fresh Lime or Lemon, and some Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Seriously that is it!
This recipe is for just one serving, because I made it for myself for lunch....
Amy's Hummus Salad Dressing Recipe:
In a medium sized bowl add:
1/4 cup of Hummus
the juice from 1/2 Lime or Lemon
1/2 Tbsp of EVOO (using 1 full Tbsp wouldn't be a bad idea!)
Whisk it all together and then add your salad stuff and toss it all together and enjoy!
Today was hot so I'm went really light with my salad:
-1 cup of a "Garden Salad" mix, which included: ice berg lettuce, carrots and red cabbage (there's a lot of Vitamin A & K in there! What are they good for?)
-1 cup of extra grated carrots (extra Carotenoids! What's that?)
-1/2 large cucumber, skinned and diced
-oh, also, I cut up a few sprigs of Cilantro (detoxify!) on top: pretty, healthy and yummy!
This is all good. The Hummus provides protein and fiber and the Olive Oil provides good fats, so you have a lot of healthy stuff going on in this salad despite its meager appearance.
I would of course have added Avocado if I had any ready; I have a ton, 10 to be exact, but zero that are ripe and ready.
So that was it. It was crisp, refreshing on a hot day and filling and full of good stuff. Cheers to good eating!
