What’s your go-to dip? Like the dip you always have in your fridge (I know you have one). Mine is hands down HUMMUS. It’s creamy and savory and makes the perfect snack or addition to your meal. I’m a sucker for any and all mediterranean foods though (except olives, gosh I can’t stand olives ick!). I love their lighter style and it’s always full of health fats (hellooo delicious olive oil).

Mediterranean Loaded Hummus

I usually buy a massive tub of hummus during my weekly grocery run but decided I’d try my hand at whipping up the good stuff at home from scratch. Well I’m here to tell you that with cookout season upon us and outdoor social gatherings, this may be my new favorite dish. The best part about it is once you nail down your base (aka the hummus) you can experiment with the toppings! I love it when you can get super creative in the kitchen :)
