“Creamy” Hummus Salad Dressing

We’ve posted a recipe for hummus, we’ve posted a recipe for, essentially, hummus-stuffed ravioli. Now, we’re posting a recipe for hummus salad dressing! This dressing is great because it’s thick and creamy, but there’s no cream!  Health point #2? It contains that chickpea+tahini combo, so not only is it high in protein, but it’s a complete protein. A salad dressing that’s a complete protein. What’s better than that?

You can adjust the thickness of this dressing by adding more water, if you’d like.  We thought that this dressing would be best if you actually tossed the greens in the dressing before adding the rest of the veggies/toppings, because then you would get a more even coating. But however you eat it, we promise that it won’t disappoint!
