I never knew what real hummus tasted like until I went to Israel. Standing on a street corner in Tel Aviv along with my other friends who were part of Taste of Israel, we experienced real authentic hummus…it was warm, it was creamy, it was ethereal. We all were like hungry littl’ piglets dipping torn pieces of warm flat bread into the several bowls we had. I also learned that it was pronounced ‘whoooooo muss’.

This pineapple serrano hummus is about as close as it gets for me to the real deal of tasting ‘whoomuss’ in Tel Aviv. The texture and flavor, a slight bit of heat from the serrano and a subtle sweet from the pineapple, are spot on! Yes, I could barely stop eating it again once I had it made, styled it and then photographed it. Trust me, you’ll probably never buy pre-packaged hummus again!

This recipe is all my zany brain creation, and it’s sponsored by Dole Packaged Foods. For a complete disclosure of my work with the good folks at DPF, click here!
