Hummus Heart Salad Bowl

Popular in Middle Eastern Cuisine, Hummus is made from Chickpeas (aka Garbanzo) beans. The beans are full of vitamins, minerals, fiber, and they are a good source of protein. Hummus can be served as a dip, a spread or as a salad dish. My Hummus Heart Salad Bowl recipe with Vinaigrette salad dressing is simple, healthy and easy to make.
