I look forward to making this dish every summer. It’s so addicting that I don’t think it’s possible to make it too much. Serve it as a starter, or a light summer dinner. You can use any kind of pita for dipping. It’s colorful, easy and SO wonderfully light and delicious.
I’m also sharing my tips for ‘doctoring’ up hummus so you don’t need to make it from scratch.
