One of the wonderful things about hummus is that is can add a fulfilling creaminess to some summer dishes without a lot of unnecessary additives. Take the quintessential potato salad for example. Generally smothered in mayonnaise, this summer staple can sometimes be more heavy than fresh. Let’s try a different approach, shall we?
This fresh herb and hummus dressing isn’t just perfect with potato salad, you can use it with any kind of grilled vegetable and goes well with brined pork chops, grilled chicken thighs or even with fresh, crisp vegetables like cucumbers, carrots and celery as a tasty snack.
This is going to be your go-to dressing for the rest of the summer.
Fresh herb and hummus dressing
Place first 5 ingredients in a medium-sized bowl and stir gently to combine.
While stirring, slowly pour in oil to thin out dressing.
Add honey and season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover and keep in fridge until ready to serve.
Note: the dressing is best when prepared just before assembling salad.
Potato and cucumber salad
Place all salad ingredients in a large bowl and drizzle desired amount of dressing over top.
Toss gently until well-coated and serve.
* Adding an onion when boiling potatoes helps add flavour and also leaves you with sweet strips of onion that make for a great addition to a potato salad.
