I made this recipe the other day when I was hungry for hummus but didn't have all the ingredients. Italian-style salad dressing adds a nice zest to an otherwise traditional favorite. Garnish with the unused half of the red pepper or spinach. Serve with bagels or pita bread.

This is great stuff! Very much like traditional hummus but a little thinner. The Italian dressing adds a nice zest. A good change from the usual hummus. Read More

This dip is terrible! The ingredients didn't sound like a good mix to me but I tried it because of all the rave reviews. I attempted to salvage it by adding more ingredients but ended up throwing it all away. If you appreciate true hummus you probably won't care for this. Read More

This was delicious! I used 2 different types of salad dressing (to finish up the bottles) one of which had roasted garlic in it (so I omitted the garlic powder) the other was a balsamic vinagrette. I found that the salad dressing made the dip too sour so I blended the whole red pepper instead of just 1/2 and it was perfect (with a nice slightly sweet taste). I also omitted the sesame seeds since I didn't have any. My husband hates hummus but liked this one as you could not taste the chickpeas. This is a versatile dip you can make all kinds of adjustments to your liking. Read More
