Holly’s Hummus

An easy-to-make, light and zesty Mediterranean-flavored hummus. A hit with my friends and family, this is great as an appetizer, side dish, or versatile dip for veggies, pita or chips.

Original recipe makes 2 cups


1 (15.5 ounce) can garbanzo beans (chickpeas), drained
1/3 cup pitted Spanish Manzanilla olives
1 teaspoon minced garlic
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh basil
