Holiday Appetizers Mediterranean Hummus

I’ve been having so much fun sharing some of my favorite appetizers from this year’s cooking season. Last week I shared my Beef Stuffed Cocktail Peppers and before that my Cranberry Pecan Gouda Truffles. Today I am thrilled to share the third appetizer for this party season, Mediterranean Hummus.

Before I tell you more about this flavor-packed appetizer, I want to talk a bit about the color on your party tables. When you are planning appetizers for a party, be sure and think about adding plenty of color. If you serve all brown food, no matter how tasty it is, it will look and feel boring. Plan to toss in a few dishes that have a big color impact to pop the table and the offering. That is exactly what my vibrant Mediterranean Hummus does! Read on for a Pro-Tip.

This incredibly beautiful appetizer can be made in about 5 minutes. Spread your favorite hummus on a plate or shallow dish. I used red pepper hummus, not only is its orange tone wonderful, but it also has amazing flavor. Next, chop olives, cucumbers, red onion, and tomato and sprinkle them along with crumbled feta cheese over the hummus. Serve with carrot sticks, corn chips, or pita chips.

Your family and friends are going to love this one and so will you because it is so fast and tasty!!

Mediterranean Hummus.

1 package roasted red pepper hummus or make your own (recipe below)

1/2 cup chopped tomatoes

1/2 cup chopped cucumbers

1/2 cup chopped olives

1/4 cup chopped red pepper

1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese

Spread hummus in a shallow dish. Sprinkle chopped vegetables and feta cheese over the hummus. Serve with carrot sticks, pita chips, or corn chips.

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

1 15 ounce can chickpeas drained and washed

1 red bell pepper roasted and diced

 1 clove garlic

¾ teaspoon salt

¼ cup fresh squeezed lemon juice

¼ cup tahini paste

2 tablespoons olive oil

Dash of cayenne pepper

Put all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until creamy.  Serve with pita chips.

Pro-Tip– To give food a real pop, do what my favorite Parisian chef taught me. Chop flat leaf parsley very finely. Wring the parsley out in a dish towel until it is very dry. Then sprinkle it over platters of food like confetti and you will have a instant food pop!
