Balsamic & Herb Hummus

Sedona, AZ

Consider this delicious dip for your next party or Labor Day festivities.  Savory rosemary and thyme combined with the sweetness of balsamic vinegar and the smooth richness of the tahini makes for a perfect hummus flavor combination.  Goes great with a tray of veggies for dipping, crostini, pita, or crackers for spreading.  It's so simple, and everyone will want the recipe.

Hummus is a food group!

  1. I just found your website this morning, love, love, love it. I can hardly wait to try your recipes, they look amazing.
    We also live in an RV and I found that using two "Air Bake" cookie sheets on the lower rack in the oven prevents burned bottoms. They come in two sizes, the smaller one fits my oven.

    1. Oh, I really appreciate that tip! RV baking is sometimes quite an obstacle. Thanks for the blog love :)
