When I found myself with leftover hummus from a get together, I searched for recipes in which to use it. This Betty Crocker recipe was just the right one because I also had leftover olives, from an antipasto platter.

7 ounces plain hummus
1/2 cup pitted Kalamata and/or Spanish olives, chopped and drained
1 Tbsp. Greek vinaigrette or zesty Italian dressing
7 pita bread (6″ diameter), each cut into 6 wedges


  1. Spread hummus on 8- to 10-inch serving plate
  2. Mix olives and vinaigrette in small bowl.
  3. Spoon over hummus.
  4. Serve with pita bread wedges.

  • Use any olives which you happen to have. I used a mix of black olives and green olives.

Yield: 10 servings

    Now that looks good. I had been a ‘black olive hater’ for many years because as a kid I ate a whole can of them and got sick. We are no friends again and I love them. 🙂

      Hi – So glad to hear that you have made friends again with black olives. I remember placing one on each finger and waving them around on my hands (as a child, of course…). Thanks for your comment. – Nancy Jean
