Hummus Salad Dressing

Standard

This salad dressing is one of our new favorites. It’s easy to make at home, is a good source of protein, and doesn’t have as much oil as lots of other dressings. We drizzle it on salads, use it as a dip for veggies, and put some on top of veggie bowls for lunch. Just adjust the amount of added water to change the consistency.

Ingredients:

1 ½- 1 2/3 cups of cooked chickpeas (about ½ heaping cup of dried chickpeas, cooked)

½ teaspoon cumin

¼ cup tahini (such as this homemade tahini)

3-4 Tablespoons lemon juice, to taste

2 cloves of garlic

1/2- 2/3 cup ice cold water, or more to preferred consistency

3 Tablespoons olive oil

salt to taste

Directions and Notes:

Combine the chickpeas, cumin, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, ½ cup of ice water, and olive oil in a food processor and process until smooth and about the consistency of a creamy salad dressing. Add more water until the desired consistency is reached and salt to taste.
