Summer of Salad – Roasted Red Pepper Hummus


I made a big batch for the Fourth of July.

2 cans chickpeas
1 large jar of roasted red peppers
Lemon juice
Olive oil
Salt and pepper

Put it all in a food processor or blender and “whip the bejeezus out of it” as my friend Janelle’s Memere told me years and years ago, when I asked  her how she made hers.

I realize that every salad recipe has more or less been “toss it in to taste,” but that’s genuinely how I make my hummus. I basically try to make it taste as close to Sabra as I can, which I’m learning means adding more and more lemon, garlic, and salt.

For the 4th, we just served it with chips, but here I’m using the leftovers as a healthy alternative to salad dressing on top of sliced tomato and mixed greens.

  1. Yum! This looks so good. I love your salad posts.

  2. Thanks for stopping by! It’s been a lot of fun testing out new salad ideas, and I don’t know about any weight loss, but I do feel like I’m eating more healthy food every day.
