Hummus - 20 different ways

So it's officially mid-summer...when vegetables are fresh and fabulous.  It's hot, so you don't want to cook, but need a little change on what you are dipping your veggie sticks into, taking to parties and slathering on your pita wedges.  This summer, we are really loving carrot hummus and so are our clients.  One big retailer down the highway is selling beet hummus that apparently make the kids go crazy!  Whatever taste you are aiming for, here are some new ways to spice up a summer party classic.  Thanks OneGreenPlanet.org
