Appetizers, Salads, Sauces | May 10, 2017 | By

Sabra hummus, plain yogurt, and milk combine to make the easiest and most delicious dressing to this simple, filling, and nutritious Greek salad.

I received free samples of Sabra Hummus mentioned in this greek salad with hummus dressing post. By posting this recipe I am entering a recipe contest sponsored by Sabra and am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest. I was not compensated for my time.

 

One of my favorite meals ever was this vegetarian pita sandwich, with a side salad topped with what I’m sure was hummus. It was 5 years ago, while I lived in Spain, on a study abroad.

Spaniards eat multi-course meals for lunch nearly every day. I know that a salad doesn’t typically constitute as an appetizer most of the time, but as a first course, a big crunchy salad can’t be beat. Besides, in terms of an easy appetizer, throwing a bunch of vegetables into a giant bowl, and mixing up this really easy and delicious salad dressing with ready to eat Sabra Roasted Red Pepper Hummus makes for a quick and crowd pleasing sit-down app.

Again, going back to that delicious meal I had in Spain, this side salad was such a delicious first course for my lunch.

Enjoy this really delicious salad this weekend on National Hummus Day, May 13. You can eat it nearly any time of the day, as a delicious & different appetizer, or as a part of your lunch. It’s not so filling that it’ll get in the way of more food, and by more food, I mean more hummus to celebrate National Hummus Day!

On the other end, you can totally omit the salad part & toast pita to dip in this delicious sauce. Either way, you’ll be majorly satisfied.

    I love hummus, but would never have thought to use it as a base for dressing. Now I’m wondering why I didn’t!

      I know right, especially because it’s so freaking easy?! I never would have thought about it either if I hadn’t had it in Barcelona.
