As a vegan, hummus is just about one of the best foods to exist. It’s creamy, flavorful, and versatile. And makes a simple, delicious salad dressing! Blanched green veggies pair perfectly with spicy jalapeño hummus for an easy salad that’s sure to please!

Asparagus and Green Bean Salad

Asparagus and Green Bean Salad with Jalapeño Hummus Dressing

Serves 4

  • 1 lb fresh green beans, washed and ends removed
  • 1 lb fresh asparagus, washed and ends removed
  • 8 tbsp Sabra Jalapeño Hummus
  • 4 tbsp good quality olive oil
  • 4 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
  • Sliced green onions, to garnish

Cut the prepped produce into two-inch pieces.

Bring a pot of water to boil and cook the veggies for 5 minutes. Drain in a colander and rinse with cold water; drain again. Transfer to a large bowl.

In a small bowl, whisk together the Jalapeño Hummus, olive oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper. Taste and adjust seasoning as desired.

Pour the dressing over the cooked vegetables and toss to coat. Serve warm, or refrigerate for a few hours to serve chilled.

    this looks like a really good ‘different’ veggie salad than the normal ol’ salad. I might throw in some red/yellow peppers for color. Question: to cook with the greens…or leave raw? Great idea…thanks! Diana

      My recipe has you steam the veggies so they’re cooked but still somewhat crunchy.
