Summer Hummus Flatbread

When it’s hot, sometimes it’s tempting to just lounge around like a lizard and order carryout, making someone else do the work. But this recipe beats carryout any day and is the perfect cooling meal after a long, hot commute. All you have to do is grab some flatbread, your favorite hummus, and make a quick little salad of sorts using pickled onions, asparagus, herbs and tomatoes. The grill only has to be on for maybe 5 minutes!

I learned from one of my best friends, Molly, how to make hummus using a thin drizzle of ice water poured slowly into the food processor as the chickpeas are blending. It cuts down on the amount of oil you use, which is always a great thing, but it also makes the hummus super silky and creamy. Try it!

Ricotta salata is made from sheep’s milk, is aged and pressed, resulting in a briny, crumbly, firm white cheese. A little ricotta salata goes a long way, imparting a lot of flavor to this fresh, lemony flatbread. If you can’t find any, use a bit of feta instead.

Stay cool out there, people!
