This creamy, savory gluten-free dressing uses hummus instead of mayonnaise and capers rather than anchovies. Add a few dollops to a bowl of chopped hearty greens like kale. Massage the dressing into the greens for 1 to 2 minutes to infuse them with flavor and make them deliciously tender.

Ingredients

½ cup plain hummus
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon drained capers, minced
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoons egg-free Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon lemon zest
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper

Directions

1. Whisk together hummus, olive oil, lemon juice, capers, garlic, mustard, lemon zest, salt and black pepper.

2. Add a little hot water to thin, as needed, until dressing reaches a pourable consistency.

3. Use immediately or refrigerate in a sealed container up to 1 week.
