NICOLE GIMMILLAROE
A twist on traditional hummus and packed with protein and healthy fats, this dip makes for a perfect warm weather light lunch or snack. From picnic to poolside, try it with English cucumber chips or use it to fill a wrap. If you can’t find sunflower seed butter, substitute almond or cashew butter.

Happy Summer!
