Hi there, Ameera here!
This hummus-based dressing has become a family favorite when we need to whip up a quick dressing. Perfectly tangy with just the right amount of sweetness, this dressing makes for a great fast and easy salad dressing in a hurry.
We always have hummus in the fridge so this one comes together in less than 3 minutes and tastes perfectly delicious! You gotta give this one a try!
Tips for Success:
- Flavor Profile: The flavor profile of this dressing is sweet and tangy.
- Taste Testing Salad Dressings: There is an art to arriving at the salad dressing that perfectly suits your tastes. The best way to test salad dressings is to place a few leaves of lettuce (or other salad greens) in a tiny bowl, put a tiny bit of the salad dressing over top and mix really well, then taste test. Some salad dressings taste amazing before you dress the salad, then once dressing the salad, they fall flat. That is because the salad dressing has to cover all the salad ingredients and it flattens the flavor. Additionally, some salad dressings taste really tangy or overly strong before dressing the salad, but once you dress the salad, it coats all the ingredients and tastes amazing.
- Hummus: We used our The Best Hummus because it is super creamy and smooth, making it perfect for a dressing base. Feel free to use your favorite hummus.
- Salad Ingredients: Mixed greens, sliced cucumbers, sliced tomatoes, grated carrots, chopped red bell peppers, baked chickpeas, shredded beet juice marinated green cabbage, and whole wheat couscous.
Leftovers and Freezing:
Leftovers will generally keep for 4-5 days in the refrigerator. Store in a covered container. Reheating can be done on the stovetop, or in the microwave.
This dish can be frozen; however, it is best if served immediately after making or after refrigerating leftovers. Pasta does tend to get a little mushy after freezing.
Kitchen Products Used:
- Whisk or fork
- Stock pot to boil the potatoes and cauliflower
- High-Speed Blender
We certainly hope you give this deliciousness a try.
