Recipe: Sriracha Hummus Fajita Salad

Recipe: Sriracha Hummus Fajita Salad

As a vegetarian, you’re basically required to be into salads. While they may be as tried-and-true as an old sweatshirt, salads can be quite filling and they definitely don’t have to be boring.

One of my favorite salads is from Republic Gastropub: Grilled Shrimp Salad with Brussels sprouts, spaghetti squash, crispy salami, red onion, smoked gouda and horseradish vinaigrette, Have them sub the shrimp for avocado and the salami for boiled egg, and you’re good to go. Exhibit A that salads are just blank slates with which to get creative.

You’ve probably had a fajita vegetable salad before, but what really makes this one is the hummus dressing. It has a creamy, slightly spicy and smokey flavor and would be just as good as a dip for veggies as it is a salad dressing. 

The recipe below is really just a guideline. Feel free to use whatever veggies you want, whatever toppings you want, etc. This can even be made vegan by omitting cheese and sour cream. It’s a great weeknight dinner that can be made in about 20-30 minutes!

Sizzling goodness.
