Salad with Creamy Coriander & Cumin Hummus Bed

Vegan dinner made from spiced homemade hummus and topped with easy, delicious salad.

Pairing hummus with veggies? A delicious no-brainer. But pairing it with a salad? Tell me more. This salad starts by smoothing a layer of hummus beneath your bed of greens, giving your meal tons of added texture, nutrients, and flavor. Yum!


But this hummus isn’t your typical recipe. Coriander and cumin combine to add a blend of smooth earthy flavor that helps enhance the taste of your crisp and crunchy veggies. Its velvety smooth texture makes our take on creamy hummus a delicious salad dressing stand-in.


Whether you dip, dress, or eat it by the spoonful, we hope you enjoy!

tasty tip

After you assemble your dish, drizzle with a little extra olive oil and a small squeeze of lemon to get more pops of flavor in every bite. And if you’re a fan of extra creamy hummus, simply add more tahini to get an even smoother texture.
