Flip Your FlipLid Over This Summer Hummus


When summer hits, nothing tastes better than a light, crisp menu. We asked Catering Chef Naz Khan, owner of Naz Kitchen Fun, to create a hummus recipe that would be perfect as a warm weather appetizer. She says, “The hummus is so cold, refreshing and appetizing; tastes extra good as dip or with pita bread in a wrap or sandwich.” Watch how Naz creates and stores her hummus in the video below:
