Ladies and gentlemen, I’m bringing you the EASIEST vinaigrette EVER! It’s basically perfect for any salad or roasted vegetable and is ready in just 5 minutes. Yeah, 5 minutes. I mean, it’s not vinaigrettes are usually a huge time consumer but when folks try this lemon herb hummus vinaigrette they’ll definitely think it took longer than 5 minutes. 

I guess we can thank Sabra for that. Their plain hummus is the perfect choice for quick and easy appetizers or in this case, salad dressing. 

Plus, if you’re all about fresh lemon flavor and fresh herbs you’ll love this taste. It’s so bright and fresh it pairs perfectly with bitter greens and also tastes great over top roasted sweet potatoes. 

I know we’ve mentioned I’m doing a Friendsgiving this year and I’m trying to incorporate different items than what I would see at my normal family Thanksgiving. I want big bold flavor with lots of options for my meat and plant-based eating friends. 

Plus, the addition of hummus to a salad dressing brings an extra boost of protein for those non-meat eaters in your life. It’s also a great way to introduce kids to hummus if they have been unwilling to try in the past.
