    Ducky's Note:

    I got this recipe from a Greek appetizer class I took right before the Athens Olympics. We all adored this hummus and it is so simple to prepare.

      I am of Greek heritage, and I can tell you that this is very authentic. I am passing this on to my friends for sure. It has the perfect combination of flavors. I like to use it as a dip with some Triscuits or as a spread over a piece of bread for a healthy snack.

      Delicious, Ducky. Have to admit, I was concerned I'd miss my tahini in this recipe. I didn't. Great recipe and it avoids all the fat and calories of other hummus dishes.

      Mmmmmm! Easy and tasty, I loved this for my lunch today with pita chips. I made this as written, except for the mint...I didn't have any. I love the cumin flavor in this! Thanks Ducky :)
