This Lemon Hummus Dressing comes together in minutes and adds lots of flavor to your salads and veggies.
Here at TheCookful, we love to make homemade salad dressings when time permits. It doesn’t always happen, but it’s delicious when it does.
A homemade dressing can really make any salad more exciting and tasty, and this Lemon Hummus Dressing is no exception.
What Ingredients Do I Need?
Store-bought or homemade hummus makes the perfect base for a quick and easy dressing. Because the hummus already has garlic, lemon, cumin, and tahini, there’s no need to add too many extra ingredients, except a few staples you probably already have on hand, for thinning out the hummus.
This dressing is extra thick so it clings well to every ingredient in your salad bowl, but if you prefer a thinner dressing, simply add more lemon juice or oil, one teaspoon at a time, until the desired consistency is reached, and then adjust the salt to your taste.
How To Make Lemon Hummus Dressing
To make the Lemon Hummus Dressing, stir together the hummus, lemon juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl until well combined and smooth. The consistency should be like runny yogurt: thick, but fluid.
Serve immediately, or store in the refrigerator in an air-tight container up to 5 days.
