+ 8 ounces hummus
+ 1/2 Roma tomato, diced
+ 1/2 cucumber, diced
+ 4 ounces crumbled feta cheese
+ black pepper & salt to taste

Instructions: 1. Dice your tomatoes and cucumbers. 2. Combine in a bowl with crumbled feta cheese, salt, and pepper. 3. Mix together. 4. Place on top of the hummus, and serve with assorted crackers.

Traveling Tip: Instead of transferring the hummus to a separate bowl, add the ingredients right to the package the (store-bought) hummus comes in, and then use the same lid for packing. There’s usually enough room in the container to add ingredients, but if you prefer a higher topping-to-hummus ratio, simply remove some of the hummus before adding.
