Summer is right around the corner, which makes now the perfect time to gear up for fun and tasty hummus dip recipes. After all, summer is all about finger food, and who doesn’t like finger food? No one! So it’s time to ditch the savory, hot and heavy meals of winter for lighter fare that is no less satisfying.

It took Americans a while to warm up to hummus dip, but now that its here, it’s here to stay. Hummus has indeed captured the hearts, imaginations, and taste buds of Americans across the country and it’s easy to see why. There are hummus dips and different flavor combinations out there for every taste preference, even for the pickiest of eaters.

But is hummus really being enjoyed to its fullest potential? Sure, hummus is great for dipping bits of pita bread and fresh vegetables, but did you know it can be paired with just about anything? Here are three uncommon but tasty ways to enjoy hummus.

Wing it

Bleu cheese dressing is delicious. There’s no doubt about it. But it’s also loaded with calories, fat, and sodium, not to mention that fried chicken wings can contain an abundance of all three. However, hummus can be used as a creamy alternative to bleu cheese dressing or other popular chicken wing dips. The part? Aside from the flavor and texture, it’s actually good for you.

A little dab will do ya

It’s common to add a dollop of sour cream to a bowl of soup or on top of a baked potato, but hummus can do the trick too. Hummus is the perfect compliment for lentil or bean soup, and serves as an excellent alternative to butter or sour cream on a baked potato.

Condiment wars

Hummus can be used in the same ways you already use some of your favorite condiments. It can be spread on bread and toast just like butter or mayonnaise, and can be used in place of ketchup for fries, hot dogs, and other foods.
