Ingredients

  • Hummus – You can use prepared hummus or make your own hummus – it’s up to you! You can also decide what flavor would work best. I like to stick to more classic hummus flavors since we’re adding all of the toppings, but roasted red pepper, roasted garlic, or other similar flavors work well.
  • Cucumber – I prefer Persian or English cucumbers as they don’t require peeling and have less seeds, but you can use any type. If you’re using a regular cucumber, peel and remove seeds if necessary.
  • Tomato – Use a variety of tomatoes and whatever will be best flavor and texture. If it’s tomato season, you’ll have a lot to choose from, if it’s not, try grape cherry or grape tomatoes for best flavor.
  • Feta cheese – I prefer to buy a block of feta (in brine if possible!) for the best flavor. You could also use crumbled feta if you can’t find block.
  • Olives – Use a mixed olive variety or kalamata olives. I like to buy them without pits for this purpose.
  • Onion – I recommend thinly sliced red onion for this salad. If raw onions are a little strong, soak them in some cold water for 5-10 minutes after slicing to mellow them out a bit.
  • Garlic – This is optional, but if you love garlic, don’t skip it! I prefer to grate it into the dressing so that you don’t get bites of it. You could also use a sprinkle of garlic powder instead.
  • Spices – Dried basil, dried parsley, paprika
  • Toasted almonds – Optional, but adds great crunch
  • Fresh parsley – Optional, but adds a nice fresh flavor

I like to serve this loaded hummus dip with a variety of dipping options:

  • Air Fryer Pita Chips
  • Sliced baguette or crostini
  • Mini naan bread (serve warmed)
  • Raw veggies like carrots, cucumber slices, radish slices, celery sticks, snap peas
