Huhhh…. hummm…. hummus. HUH?

I just heard through the grapevine that there are people who do not know what hummus is. Whaaaat?

Well, I’m here to help. I’ve teamed up with Sabra to celebrate National Hummus Day. It’s today – May 21st! If you’re reading this on May 22nd, no worries! Make sure to mark your calendar for May 21st, 2016.

If you don’t know what hummus is, you’re probably new around here because I have quite a few hummus recipes on this little piece of internet-land. (PS: Meet Hummus, wiki-style. Educate yourself and then feed yourself.)

I’m adding to that list with another one of my obsessions – zucchini noodles, aka zoodles. Sick of ’em yet? Good, me neither. (PS: I use this Spiralizer.)

This salad is super easy to make and unbelievably flavorful thanks to Sabra Roasted Red Pepper Hummus (my fave flavor!).

You could really add any vegetables into this zucchini noodle salad that you wanted, but I wanted to continue the red pepper flavor with some fresh red bell peppers. I also added radishes for crunch and tomatoes for juicy bites of freshness. You could also try experimenting with different flavors of hummus to make this a completely new creation. I’m thinking basil pesto hummus with some fresh basil, mozzarella, and tomatoes! How tasty would that be?

  2. Zucchini noodles and hummus dressing? I think I might have found my make it over and over again summer dish – thank you! :)

  3. I love hummus

  4. Love one serving meals. And the hummus as the dressing? YASSSSS. I’ve been doing this with quiona lately and it is amazing!

  5. Great minds lady! Love this.

  6. Sabra’s roasted red pepper hummus is my favorite too! Love that you used it as a dressing! It looks fantastic!

  7. I love Zoodles almost as much as I love Sabra Hummus! I’ll have to try the roasted red pepper flavor next time.

  8. This looks like the perfect weekday lunch for me! I often have zoodles, but heating up the sauce is kind of a pain (and more dishes). A no-cook zoodle dish, with hummus (which I ALWAYS have on hand)? Yes yes and yes!

  9. It’s only the best thing on Earth! This is one creative recipe. Love that you used hummus as the dressing. Pinned.

  10. This would be perfect for lunch today! My mom has been on a zucchini noodle kick, I’m emailing this to her and I know she will love it too.

  11. It’s hard to believe I have friends who STILL don’t know what hummus is! At my old job, I had to educate my coworkers then force feed er I mean share Sabra hummus with them :)

  12. People who don’t know what hummus is??? For shame! I’ve never thought to incorporate it into a “pasta”-type dish, but this looks awesome!
