Hummus  an iconic middle eastern dip, which is not only healthy but takes very few ingredients to prepare. If you plan just a day ahead by soaking chickpeas, then you have a versatile dip for the next day, which can also be used to dress salads apart from its use in rolls and sandwiches. This dip can be flavoured in innumerable ways, just as I added roasted red peppers in this recipe. Into the 10th day of my 30 days 30 salads series, I dressed up a Greek salad with this healthy creamy dip, to get a gorgeous looking and fabulous tasting salad.
