I know many of you have gotten up this morning, skeptical about starting your day because it is Friday 13th. Well, I am here to tell you that there is actually a reason to celebrate…today is National Hummus Day!
Sabra Hummus is one of those things that we ALWAYS have in our fridge. Whether I am munching on some celery and hummus in the afternoon, or quickly making hummus wraps for the kids lunches, it always saves the day. Sabra Hummus is also a fantastic ingredient to add protein to a meal.
What is even better is that Sabra has come out with a slew of new and delicious flavors to make meals more interesting. I almost jumped for joy when I saw the Caramelized Onion and Smoke Paprika flavor. I can eat just a plate of caramelized onions and be one happy camper! The Rosemary Sea-Salt is also another favorite of ours and pairs perfectly with some crispy French bread.
With Memorial Day right around the corner, I thought a good pasta salad was in order. However since I am not a huge fan of Mayo, I opted to swap it out for hummus instead. For this particular recipe I used the new Garden Hummus Tuscan Herb. Let me tell you that it added the most delicious flavors to an otherwise bland pasta salad! It is my new secret ingredient!
