Hack Your Hummus To Give A Major Protein Boost To Salads
Salads are a great way to incorporate healthy foods into your diet, but they often lack a satisfying source of protein. You can easily fix this by using hummus as a salad dressing.
While some hummus salad dressings call for mixing Dijon mustard and lemon juice with the spread, there's an even easier method of turning your favorite hummus into salad dressing.
Start by selecting a high-quality hummus, then change it into a dressing-like consistency by mixing it with water, citrus juice, olive oil, or a mild vinegar.
Begin by adding a small amount of liquid to the hummus and mixing it until it's well combined, then add a little more at a time until it reaches the desired consistency.
The hummus dressing pairs particularly well with Mediterranean-inspired salads such as Greek salad or quinoa and chickpea salad, but it's also very versatile in general.
