This colorful Rainbow Hummus makes the perfect snack anytime of the day!
Rainbow Hummus

It’s always a pleasure partnering with Sabra to bring you new recipes ideas!  Did you know National Hummus Day is coming up on May 13th?  What a delicious day and I will be celebrating along with Sabra!

For years, my entire family loves to gather around a plate of hummus and our favorite vegetables, crackers, bread and hummus.  It has become a tradition that is not only delicious but healthy too.

This appetizer is so good, and good for you, it actually becomes an unofficial meal.

Whether it’s mid-afternoon and you need a pick-me-up to make it through to dinner or pre-dinner when everyone arrives home from the day and dinner isn’t ready yet, this pretty little hummus platter is the perfect option.  It’s nice because any of your favorite vegetables work great.  Use whatever your family enjoys.  It’s a beautiful mess isn’t it?

Rainbow Hummus

We love the “Unofficial Meal” because it brings us all together during the busy day to enjoy our favorite appetizer while talking about our day together.  Little moments like this are my favorite.
