Hummus With A Side Of Middle Eastern Salad (A Recipe)

Here’s an idea for your next snack or hors d’oeuvre plate of hummus: salad on the side. That way, when scooping up some hummus with a piece of pita, you can scoop up some salad too (or spoon it on top of the hummus).

The idea comes from The Spice House, a purveyor of the finest spices, herbs, blends, and extracts for 66 years.

The Spice House paired a dish of hummus with a Middle Easter-style salad, made by combining:

  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Radishes
  • Parsley
  • Kalamata olives, pitted (substitute Picholine)
  • Small green olives, pitted
  • Dressing: fresh lemon juice and olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional garnish: pomegranate arils
  • Garnish for the hummus: sumac* or za’atar†
    Or, you could make Israeli salad or a cucumber salad with mini cucumbers.

    *Sumac spice consists of ground-up berries from a bush that grows throughout the Middle East. They have a pleasantly fruity, tart flavor that lends a nice acidity to a variety of dishes. It is often sprinkled on a plate of hummus to add color and flavor, but it also works well to flavor chicken, fish, feta cheese, salads, and vegetables.

    †Za’atar is a spice blend that is commonly used in Middle Eastern cuisine. It typically includes salt, sesame seeds, sumac, and thyme. Za’atar has a slightly earthy taste. The thyme provides a subtle bitterness, the sesame seeds add a touch of sweetness, and the sumac provides a hint of citrus.
