Kalamata Olive Hummus

Shawn A Reed


Well I've been wanting to make this for a long time and just kept forgetting to pick up the ingredients when I was at the store, ugh.... But I remembered this week. I use to buy this already prepared at a store in Vermont when I lived up there and I tried to find it here in PA where I live now but to my dismay I couldn't find it anywhere.
I checked online for a recipe and picked and choose the ingredients I thought I would like best.

I hope you like it :)

PS. Even my meat and potato Man Loves this!!
