Michelle's Zesty Hummus-like Spread

Michelle's Zesty Hummus-like Spread


"I made this recipe the other day when I was hungry for hummus but didn't have all the ingredients. Italian-style salad dressing adds a nice zest to an otherwise traditional favorite. Garnish with the unused half of the red pepper or spinach. Serve with bagels or pita bread."

This dip is terrible! The ingredients didn't sound like a good mix to me, but I tried it because of all the rave reviews. I attempted to salvage it by adding more ingredients, but ended up t...
