Lettuce Bundles With Vegetables And Sabra Hummus


Happy Monday! It's a short week and I cannot wait till the long weekend off for 4th of July! I'll be traveling and discovering a new to me city full of food, culture and fun.

Today, however, I want to share with you a quick idea that is awesome as a snack, appetizer or a meal in itself. This post is a continuation of my working relationship with Sabra. Sabra provided samples and compensation for the recipe development, but all opinions are my own.
Here's how this idea came about:
1) I had a variety of Sabra hummus containers in my refrigerator
2) I had a bunch of produce that needed to be used
3) I wanted a light lunch that packed a lot of flavor, color and texture and would not take more than a few minutes to put together

Lettuce Bundles With Vegetables And Sabra Hummus

Ingredients
Spinach & artichoke hummus
lettuce leaves (I wish I'd used something hardy like Romaine or even endives!)
charred corn, kernels removed
cucumber, peeled and cut into strips
red pepper cut into strips
avocado, sliced
cilantro
fresh lime juice
olive oil
salt
optional: chives
 
 
How to char corn if you don't have an outdoor grill? Put it directly on the gas flame of your stove!
 

Directions
1. Spread hummus on the lettuce leaves. Pile on all the vegetables. Drizzle with lime juice and season with salt.
2. If you want, use the chives to tie these bundles together. Consume immediately.
 

Look at all the colors! It's like you are eating a rainbow ;)
