A quick walk through the garden can give you the materials you need to create a delicious summery snack to share at your next holiday BBQ. Everyone wants to bring a seasonal and delicious dish to a holiday cookout, but who wants to spend a beautiful day cooped up in the kitchen? You can be the star of the party with one of these fast and easy appetizers. Here are some easy hummus recipes you can use for that big summer BBQ you’ve been looking forward to all winter long.
Nothing says summer like hot hamburgers on the grill! But have you ever tried a burger with hummus spread instead of ketchup, mayonnaise and/or mustard? Try sun dried tomato hummus for that extra zip. Freshening up that old standby could not be easier!
Need a special treat to bring to that next cookout or get together? Try this simple cucumber cups recipe. Cut garden fresh cucumber into one-inch rounds, scoop out the center of each round with a melon baller, or small spoon, and finally fill with your favorite hummus flavors. Add a pinch of cayenne pepper or some fresh herbs to make your cucumber cups recipe the talk of the BBQ!
Since we’ve been talking cucumber cups recipes, how about one for a simple and delicious cucumber hummus sandwich? If you’re looking for recipes using hummus, this one could not be easier! Some toasted bread, cucumber slices and hummus spread is all you need. Maybe add a splash of lemon juice to brighten the whole thing up and serve. In five minutes you’ve created a yummy, and classic, tea sandwich. Enjoy!
