How to make a yummy greek salad hummus pita pizza

Listen, if there is one thing that people love it’s hummus. Every single time I bring it to holiday events people go crazy. The last holiday party my nephew walked into the door and was all “hey….did you bring hummus?” Dude, where is my hello? You can’t just ask for hummus before you say hello to your aunt. I’m pretty sure that a rule.

Luckily for my nephew (and the rest of the world) I came up with the perfect Fourth of July hummus appetizer. I quickly grilled some olive oil drizzled pita, spread the top with my husbands favorite Sabra supremely spicy hummus and then topped that with a fresh Greek salad. I know in true Greek fashion there should be olives on the salad but I forgot to buy them…whoops! Plus I really dislike olives and I wanted to eat the salad. So maybe I purposefully forgot the olives.

One will never know.

Ok, I did it in purpose.

I’m the worst.

Does your family love hummus as much as my family? Are you secret midnight hummus eater? Well, you’re in luck. Sabra is giving away a $100 Visa gift card PLUS a box full of hummus goodies. Do you know what this means people? That means you get a box full of hummus and you can use the gift card to buy ALL THE DIPPERS!

Preheat outdoor grill or grill pan.

Lay out pita bread and baste the top of the pita with olive oil. Save the remaining olive oil, there should be about 1/2 cup left.

Grill pita just until toasted.

Spread 2 tablespoons hummus on the top of each piece of pita bread.

In a large bowl add greens, cucumber, tomatoes, red onion, feta cheese, dill and mint. Toss to combine.

In a small bowl whisk together red wine vinegar, Dijon mustard, kosher salt and pepper. While whisking slowly drizzle in remaining olive oil until you create a combined mixture.

Drizzle half the dressing on the salad, toss and taste. If you want/need more dressing add more until the salad is dressed to your liking.

Add a handful of the salad onto each hummus topped pita bread and sprinkle with fresh cracked pepper.

To serve as an appetizer cut each pita into 4 wedges. To serve as a main course keep whole.
