If you like sweet and salty, this is a new salad for you! Some experiments don’t work. Pickles and ice cream, for example, is a terrible idea (unless you’re pregnant, of course, in which case everything is fair game). This salad’s got it all: the sweet, the salty, the crunchy, and (if you so choose), the minty! A perfect salad to serve during the last few weeks of summer. Try it out and enjoy! =0)

From the beginning, conflict seems to surround hummus.  Did it originate in the Middle East or in Greece?  It most likely originated in the Middle East, an obvious geographic area of consistent conflict.  However, the world is in unanimous agreement; this delectable dip is a veritable delight! Be sure to serve this easy dish with great food for dipping, such as breadsticks…
