Lemon Hummus Recipe

Lemon Hummus. | Priya Hutner

I love lemons, Mediterranean and Middle Eastern food. This lemon hummus recipe is easy to make and great to have on hand in the fridge for lunch or snacks.

This hummus can be used as a dressing on a salad, as well. Lemon and garlic make this tangy hummus a perfect dip.
