Vegetables and fresh herbs in a flavorful dressing, served over hummus. This Hummus Vegetable Salad is a perfect appetizer, side dish or party food!
I love a good salad. Hummus, vegetable, pasta, lettuce …. whatever the type, except for salads with mayo, I’m a fan. My kids used to be that way too. I would actually make them little salads to take to daycare. Then they decided salads were gross and have since refused to eat them.
My husband likes salads, but they don’t fill him. Meaning if I were to make one for a meal, I would have to heavily supplement with other items. All that to say, I don’t make salads all that often.
However, if we’re having friends or family over for a meal, it’s the perfect opportunity to create some salad sides. The last time my parents came to visit, I experiment with a few salads, including this hummus vegetable salad.
Hummus Vegetable Salad
Although I’m calling this a salad, it works as a side dish, appetizer, or party food. Make some homemade pita chips to go along and it’s a perfect for a group.
For this recipe, I used red onion, cucumber, red bell pepper and tomatoes. However you can easily switch up or add ingredients as you see fit.
I think green onions, carrots, or beats would each make lovely additions.
I used premade, regular hummus for this salad. But you can always use flavored or homemade varieties – you really can’t go wrong.
Pita chips are a great for serving, but you might also consider pretzels or multigrain tortilla chips.
This Hummus Vegetable Salad is easy to put together and will be sure to impress!
