      There were great! I made it as directed, but added some roasted red pepper to the hummus which made the color really pop. Next time I think I would cut the cucumber a little smaller so that it can be eaten in one or two bites. But it presents well and can be prepared in advance. Guests loved it!

      what a great idea to use up some of our generous neighbor's garden cukes--we love hummus. I doubled the recipe & also added a little minced garlic. These went over well at the weekend bbq. Thanks!!!

      YUMMY! These are really creamy in the centre and crunchy on the outside, great textures together. Everyone really enjoyed them, I also added garlic to the recipe, just because we like it with our hummus. Thank you Sharon123
