Sophia’s Hummus Salad

Sophia’s Hummus Salad

This is the second Spring that we are featuring Sophia's “Hummus” Salad. I feel kind of silly writing my own name in there, but it is a salad that I made up for myself, and eat quite often during the Spring and Summer, so the name definitely fits. In the Summer I add a lot of things to it, like tomato, cucumber, mint, basil, cilantro, baby potatoes, etc. But in the Spring, I keep it simple with some fresh scallions, oregano, and chile peppers. We prepare a tahini dressing with tahini, olive oil, water, and lemon juice, in which we toss the garbanzos, along with some za'atar. Za'atar is a spice mix of dried wild thyme (it sometimes has oregano, marjoram, etc), sumac, and sesame. It is a filling little salad, and is really rich in fiber, protein, iron, and calcium. Take it with you for lunch, along with the mini Arugula Pesto Barley Salad!
