Is this a Summer Fresh Dill Pickle Hummus copycat recipe?
A few months ago, I had a client tell me that I had to try the dill pickle hummus from Summer Fresh. So naturally, I did and it’s delicious. I knew it was something that I could make from home and here we are.
It’s been on my list for months now, and I finally had a spare few minutes to make it, shoot it, and now here I am writing.
Is it a copycat recipe? No, it doesn’t taste just like the store bought version but it’s close.
Summer Fresh uses a dill pickle chip seasoning, citric acid, dextrose, etc.
I did my best to keep the ingredients as simple as possible.
- canned chickpeas (aka garbanzo beans)
- dill pickles (plus some extra for topping the dip)
- fresh dill (plus extra for garnish)
- pickle juice (the pickle brine from the jar)
- garlic cloves
- extra virgin olive oil
- apple cider vinegar
- monkfruit sweetener
- kosher salt
After tasting and adjusting the recipe, I knew it needed something sweet. I used a monk fruit sweetener blend, as it’s what I had in my pantry but you could use cane sugar or honey. I would start small with those options (a teaspoon over a tablespoon).
Equipment Needed for Homemade Hummus
In order to make smooth consistency hummus, you will need one of the following:
I have both a Vitamix and a food processor, but when I make things like homemade ice cream or hummus the food processor works better (and quicker).
How to Serve Hummus
There are so many ways to serve up hummus, it’s more than just a dip. Here are my favorite ways to eat hummus.
- As a dip (duh). Served with tortilla chips, pita chips, pretzel chips, crackers, carrots, bell peppers, cucumber slices, etc.
- In place of a sandwich spread (a pita with hummus, turkey, carrots, lettuce, and pickled onions is so good).
- On a salad or a bowl. Sometimes it will replace salad dressing, sometimes I serve it on top of it all.
- Over warm potatoes. Try it, it’s delicious.
- Baked over cauliflower or broccoli.
