When you’re crunched for time and you want a crunchy snack to impress a crowd, look no further than these little dill and hummus bites.
People love ’em!
I always have a jar of fermented dills in my fridge and eat them on everything from sandwiches to pasta salads to avocado toast.
There’s a big difference between fermented dill pickles and commercial dill pickles. If you want to know more, be sure to check out my Fermented Foods FAQ where have a little buyers guide section to purchasing good-quality fermented foods that are teaming with viable probiotics.
OK, back to these pickle bites.
This is more of an assembly instruction than a ‘recipe’, as there’s not much cooking involved here. I often use store-bought hummus when I’m making these because it saves on time and I’m usually in a rush when I’m making them. But, it’s nice when I can use my own homemade hummus.
Up to you.
If you want to get all professional-like and make the hummus a ‘dollop’ rather than a ‘smear’, all I do is add the hummus to a plastic sandwich bag and cut a whole in the corner and use it like a piping bag. That’s how this hummus looks so neat and tidy. I know, very sophisticated 😉
Topping these babies with a fresh spring of dill and freshly cracked pepper makes them all “fancy” if you want to bring them to a party to potluck. They are a go-to snack in my house.
- 12 rice/flax crackers
- 2 fermented dill pickles sliced into 12 pieces
- 2 tbsp hummus (either store-bought or homemade)
- handful fresh dill sprigs
- fresh black pepper for finishing
- Top crackers evenly with hummus.
- Add 1 slice of dill pickle to each.
- Top each bite with a sprig of fresh dill weed and a dash of fresh pepper.
