No wonder, as this popular Israeli dip is so delicious, nutritious, filling and extremely easy to prepare. Over in Israel and some other Middle Eastern countries, ‘Hummus Dip’ (or, as Israelis call it, ‘Hummus Salad’ or ‘Spread’) can quite often be eaten as a main meal, believe it or not, along with pita pocket bread, salad, and sometimes sauteed mushrooms or lightly roasted pine nuts or falafels.
