Roasted Eggplant Salad w/ Hummus Dressing

Hummus is a delicious Middle Eastern dip made with chickpeas, Tahini (sesame) paste, olive oil, and lemon juice.

Hummus is mostly eaten as a side and a dip to pita bread, chips or crackers, or raw vegetables.

In this recipe, I took some Tuscan Herb Hummus from Sabra and turned it into a dressing. That's right, a dressing!! Warm Roasted Eggplant Salad lightly dressed in this creamy Tuscan Herb Hummus Dressing really takes simple ingredients up a couple notches!

Roasted Eggplant Salad

Head the oven to 375 degrees.

Lightly coat the eggplant with olive oil, salt and pepper and roast in the oven for 15 minutes.

Take the eggplant out of the oven once it’s softened and slightly browned. Let cool.

Once the eggplant has cooled, cut the sliced eggplant into halves. In a large bowl, add tomatoes, onions and parsley with the eggplant.

Drizzle with about 1/2 cup of the Sabra Tuscan Herb Hummus Dressing and gently toss. Serve at room temperature or cold.
