This dip is a personal favorite. You’ll be invited to more parties if you bring it! This colorful appetizer is not only tasty, but healthy to boot. A good source of fiber and protein, hummus is very versatile and vegan-friendly. Chopped cucumbers, tomatoes and red onions add color while feta and Kalamata olives boost the Mediterranean equity. Serve with whole grain crackers, pita triangles or vegetables. Leftovers are great wrapped in a whole wheat tortilla. Opa!
