Tuscan Hummus

Today we are talking sides and dessert all perfect for a picnic. Now, I have a delicious recipe for you that you can take along with you.  It’s a Tuscan hummus recipe that I adapted from one I found in my Wasatch Woman section of my newspaper.  It has all those fantastic Tuscan flavors in it.  Hummus really is easy to make and this Tuscan hummus was my first attempt at it.  You basically toss it in you food processor and blend until nice and smooth. Serve it up with homemade or store bought pita chips. It’s even tasty with veggies.

Here are some other great picnic sides (I tried to not include any mayo or cream items to be food safe on your picnic):
