What Else Can I Use?

  • Sometimes I have a craving for homemade hummus, but for the sake of time and effort, I highly recommend the Boar’s Head Hummus for a high-quality, readily available option
  • I love Tuscan Kale, also known as Lucinato or Dinosaur Kale for this salad and most raw preparations.  It’s softer than curly kale, though you could certainly use that if that’s what you can find.
  • Use diced onion or shallot instead of the green onions.

This Crunchy Kale Chopped Salad with 3-Ingredient Hummus Dressing is special because:

It comes together in a flash
It’s packed with flavor
You don’t have to stress about your knife skills!
It keeps in the fridge for up to 5 days
