The effort put into this salad doesn’t even come close the beauty and flavor that comes out it. The earthy and deep raw flavors of the vegetables seamlessly compliment the creamy richness of the chickpea hummus. The addition of cilantro and sumac not only add great color, but celebrate the Mediterranean pops of flavor!
A lot of people decide to purchase the really expensive spiralizers. If you don’t already have a Kitchen Aid attachment, I highly recommend my favorite hand held spiralizer you can purchase at Target for only $14.99!
