The following is an excerpt from Raw Food for Real People by Rod Rotondi (New World Library, 2010). The excerpt is from chapter 10: Making Salad a Meal. 

Okay, I’m going to give it up here — my prized recipe for hummus. It’s so easy, and it keeps well for a few days in the fridge. Besides being a great dip/appetizer, it also can turn any salad into a real meal. So make enough for a few days, and you’ll always have a delicious and very nutritious boost to add to salads or wraps. Also, note that Tahini Sauce is a versatile ingredient you’ll be able to use for many other recipes, so you’re adding another dressing and dip to your raw repertoire as well! To use it as  salad dressing, you can thin it with a little water.
