Did You Know...
This great-tasting cocktail dip began to show up at parties in the 1970s, perhaps spurred by the growing vegetarian movement or by American travels to the Middle East.
Special Touch
Serve this melt-in-your-mouth dip like they do in Turkey. Make an indent in the middle of the bowl of hummus, and spoon in 1 to 2 tablespoons of olive oil.
