Pickled Beet Hummus With Goat Cheese

Who like’s hummus? For those of you who said no, I’m willing to bet you haven’t tried it, ha ha! I was scared to try it at first, swore I didn’t like it, but it turns out I do!  I like it a lot! I’ve been wanting to combine a few of my fav salad ingredients into a new hummus lately – beets and goat cheese. They have been my salad jam lately and I thought they would be wonderful together on a cracker as well.

Crunchmaster As Your Dippers

On the topic of crackers – I am still really enjoying the crunch master crackers. They have a variety of flavors and they are multi seed and gluten free!  I love that they fit into my diet and help me stay away from chips and other not so good for you items.

When I first tasted Crunchmaster at Expo West I immediately thought they would be great with hummus. I even commented to the man who was handing out the samples – and he replied that they were great with hummus! I’m here to tell you that they are the perfect dipper.

Gimme All The Hummus

Around here we are pretty serious about our greek dips – you need to check out our lemon pesto hummus, original hummus, and our greek hummus.  All are delicious! I like to use this delicious spread not only as a dip, but on wraps at lunchtime. For this recipe I love how the beets turned the dip a beautiful shade of pink.  Just stunning.

When it comes to making dips like this a Blendtec is a must.  I created this in my wild side jar and it took literally seconds. We have been talking about Blendtec for a very long time and there is a reason why.  They are the absolute best!

I have come to really love greek food and I crave it big time. So when I can’t eat our or get takeout from my favorite place I love having a dip like this on hand to tame my cravings.
