I like to start off with a big tub of regular hummus–make it yourself or buy it the store–and then add to it to make your favorite flavors!

hummus and snacks

Here’s what I love about a hummus snack board: it makes you feel full. I just love the crunchy crackers and veggies that you can dip into it. And a bite with cheese and salami? Delish! Don’t forget to also check out my popular Epic Charcuterie Board.

Since we’re celebrating in style today, I wanted to share with you this delicious board that we made for dinner earlier this week. Yes, charcurterie boards are DELISH for dinner! And even better if you share them with friends or neighbors!

Make your own hummus

If you’re making your own hummus, all you need are these ingredients:

  • Chickpeas: Canned chickpeas (or garbanzo beans)
  • Olive Oil: Use a good quality extra virgin olive oil
  • Tahini: Ground sesame seeds are a necessity in hummus. I usually buy it at Trader Joe’s
  • Lemon: You have to have lemon squeezed for the best flavor
  • Garlic: Fresh pressed
  • Salt and Pepper: Finish with a dash of salt and pepper (we love white pepper)
