Hummus Platter

I recently noticed this post, for a quick simple meal idea. So we tried it for supper tonight.  I made hummus using this recipe (a couple notes on it, I couldn't tell if it was supposed to have 1 clove of garlic or 2 (it lists "1 clove garlic" twice in the ingredients list, so I used one, the girls aren't huge fans of garlic anyway, it needed abit more garlic. It also was WAY too salty, though to be fair, the girls were helping me & one of them measured the salt & I didn't check it before they dumped it in, so it might have been abit more than it should have been).  And then served it along with raw feta cheese, sliced cherry tomatoes, black olives, and baby carrots (not to put on the bread, but to dip in the hummus if anyone wanted). I didn't have pita bread, so served it with tortillas. Pita bread or flat bread would be better. I also think, next time I'll also include lettuce leaves, I wanted more "fresh & crunchy" than I had. Anyway, it was a quick, easy, healthy meal, gotta love that!
