Summer Salad with Hummus Dressing

I've been eating this salad like twice DAILY.  It's that good.  Let's not waste any time- here's the recipe:

1 cup spring mix; spinach, kale, chard
1/4 cup carrots
1/2 large avocado
1/4 seedless cucumber
sprinkle of feta cheese

For the dressing- Makes 1 bottle of dressing, about 6-8 oz.

1/2 can chick peas/garbanzo beans
2 tbsp tahini 
1/2 lemon, freshly squeezed
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
1-2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (use as needed)
sprinkle of oregano
fresh ground salt & pepper

Blend chick peas in a food processor or blender.  You may need to add the lemon juice to the food processor to help blend.  Pour into a bowl, add in all other ingredients, and mix until smooth.  Store in a tight container, or salad dressing bottle.  Keep refrigerated & enjoy!

And if all of this seems to complicated for you than you can cheat and buy hummus! Mix it with the other liquid ingredients and you're done! ;)
