"Authentic chummus is very different and SO much tastier than its American counterpart. This chummus is creamy and delicate in taste rather than overpowered with garlic or thick and pasty. It is eaten warm, fresh, and as a whole meal spread out in a dish and drizzled with fresh olive oil. It is scooped up with pita, raw onion slices, or just a fork. Do NOT use canned chickpeas (garbanzo beans)!"
A fresh summertime salad of garden cucumbers, tomatoes, and sweet onion is flavored generously with parsley and fresh mint. The dressing is just olive oil and lemon juice.

This dip with fava and garbanzo beans is great for breakfast or dinner.
