Scrumptious Salad with Hummus Dressing

Creamy, totally dairy-free, packed with flavour and fibre, this salad will become your new favourite!
Jun 20, 2023 | Joy McCarthy

True to its name, this salad is scrumptious. If you like a good crunch with a variety of flavours and a creamy dressing, then you’ll fall head over heels in love with this salad. It might become your new summer favourite!

I added radicchio because not only is it a beautiful colour, but it is a super healthy leafy vegetable very popular in Italian cuisine and in case you didn’t know I was Italian in past life ;)

Radicchio is one of my faves to add to salads because it has great bitter qualities which support detoxification and gut health. Don’t worry about this salad tasting bitter though, the dressing and other ingredients balance out the flavours to perfection.

Let's talk about this salad dressing though! It is creamy and fulfilling since it's made from hummus. It's gonna take your salads to a whole new epic level of deliciousness. If you're new to using hummus as a salad dressing ingredient, you're in for a real treat.

Recently I posted 3 new Hummus Salad Dressing recipes for you to choose from. I make the "simple hummus dressing" most often, but no matter which one you chooase, you won't be disappointed.

Simple Hummus Dressing

This salad is...

  • Gluten-free and paleo-friendly
  • Packed with gut-loving fibre and phytonutrients
  • Creamy without dairy
  • 100% plant-based
  • Kid-friendly and picky-eater-approved!

Salad with creamy dressing

This salad has simple, but good quality ingredients so you can certainly add cucumber, celery or beets. If you're making it for a large crowd, just triple the ingredients.
