This is such a great idea, it is an ideal light lunch or snack as it is healthy, fresh, tasty and satisfying. The different veggies go great together and I like how flexible one can be here (I used heirloom tomatoes, cucumber and green capsicum).
The hummus is super creamy and yummy, but could use a bit more seasoning for our taste. Some more paprika, a dash of cumin and cayenne pepper would be lovely additions. Also another clove of garlic if youre a garlic fan like us. :)
The ricotta is a great accompaniement to the hummus, what a nice idea!
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this keeper with us, Pat!
