    Hummus Cucumber Bites with Pickled Ginger

    Two ingredients I always have in my refrigerator are Sabra hummus and English cucumbers. My boys will eat hummus with anything from a spoon to apple slices and the same goes for cucumbers. In fact, we frequently whip up a quick batch of my Japanese Quick Pickled Cucumbers to snack on while I’m cooking dinner.

    1. My boyfriend was diagnosed with diabetes so I was in search of a healthy appetizer and this recipe was perfect. I used spicey hummus and paired with the pickled ginger, it gave it a great kick. And don’t skip the toasted seasame seeds. They add a wonderful flavor!
