I’ve been a long time proponent of homemade salad dressings. Many times I’ll tell people to just try out a simple oil and vinegar drizzle or just a squirt of lemon on their salads.

Some people need a more full-fledged dressing though.

Because hummus has a lot of ingredients in it that also work well in salad dressing, it’s the perfect launching pad for a killer recipe like this Hummus Salad Dressing.

I used Sabra Roasted Garlic Hummus for my base recipe because I love the savory and slightly sweet roasted garlic flavor, but you could use any of Sabra’s many hummus flavors and end up with some really interesting dressings.

Hummus Salad Dressing

If you can read and stir things together, you can make this Hummus Salad Dressing happen. I would say the one ingredient that you might not have easily available is sesame oil. You could just leave it out but these days you should be able to find a small container of it at most grocery stores.

You don’t even need a food processor to mix this all together. Just measure out the ingredients in a medium bowl and stir it together!

To really emulsify the ingredients, it might help to whisk it for a few seconds.

Be sure to season the dressing with a big pinch of salt and pepper.

The finished Hummus Salad Dressing is the perfect consistency (in my opinion) for salad dressing. It’s pourable, but just lightly sits on the salad without being too heavy.

You can use this on pretty much any side salad under the sun or you could get creative with it and use it as a marinade for meats!

Personally, I just like it drizzled on fresh summer veggies.

The recipe actually makes a good-sized batch of Hummus Salad Dressing so be sure to store the leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge. It should safely keep for a week or so in the fridge without any loss of flavor.

As with many homemade dressings, it might separate a bit as it sits so just give it a shake or stir before serving it if you’re using leftovers.

There’s absolutely no reason why you should be buying salad dressing when it’s this easy to make a super-delicious one in minutes.

  1. This sounds delicious! I make a salad dressing with tahini (part of hummus) but I’ve never made a dressing with hummus in it, even though I love it.
    If you ever visit Australia, you must dine at my favourite restaurant: Maha. Chef, owner & now friend, Shane Delia, makes a smoked hummus that is simply THE BEST hummus I’ve ever tasted!!! That being said, the Sabra brand is not available here. ;-)

      1. I don’t see why not. I originally thought you made the hummus, then smoked it, but have since learned that you smoke the cooked chickpeas. I’ve smoked chicken, so I don’t see why you couldn’t do it. I myself would like a smoking gun for Christmas ;-)

  2. Love Sabra hummus and I’ve been looking for a new salad dressing. Can’t wait to use this on tomatoes and zucchini from the garden.

  3. I am definitely making this, using my home made hummus. I don’t put tahini in mine, but I do use sesame oil, instead. I’m also thinking about making hummus by adding “Halva” to it, which would give the dressing a slightly sweeter flavor (I hope). This would also be a great base as a dip for crudites, sesame crackers, etc. I can’t wait to try it! Thanks for the recipe!

  4. I made this two nights ago and it is delicious! I used a 150 g contianer of plain hummus (I’m not in the US and unfortunately do not have the luxury of flavored pre-made hummus options. Finding this one container was challenging enough…), otherwise made as specified. I used it over a plate of chopped veggies from the farmers market (kholrabi, radishes, red pepper and pea pods) and it was perfect. This will definitely be a recurring recipe in my house! Thanks!

  5. We have a 2 year old daughter who we have a very hard time getting to eat any vegetables. With your roasted garlic sabra hummus dressing; we got her to eat an entire bowl! You’ve made my wife & I very happy!

  6. I can’t wait to try this! I am just starting to switch my family from processed foods to non GMO organic. It is very difficult! My 12 yr old loves hummus, now to convince the other 3 kids this is as good as ranch! I will be using my homemade hummus as a base! Thanks for the recipe!!
