Instructions
Humus
  1. Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender until smooth. Scrape the  sides with a spatula to ensure there are no lumps. Mixture should be a little  thinner than peanut butter. If too thick, add more water, one teaspoon at a time.
  2. Set aside. Hummus is better served at room temperature.
  3. Meanwhile assemble seasonal vegetables to dip into the hummus i.e. marinated  artichokes, kalamata olives, carrots, asparagus spears, yellow pepper, grape tomatoes, sugar snap peas, celery, etc
Vinaigrette
  1. In a blender, combine all ingredients except the olive oil and blend until smooth. With the machine on, slowly add the olive oil until emulsified. Pour the  vinaigrette over seasonal vegetables and toss to coat. Serve with hummus, pita  chips, and tortillas.
