  • 1 teaspoon agave nectar (See Note 3)

  • In a bowl, whisk together the hummus, lemon juice, hot sauce, water, agave nectar and salt.
  • If a thinner consistency if required, whisk in additional water, 1 teaspoon at a time.

Note 1: There are a ton of hot sauces available, so this is really going to be a personal preference. I used Cholula hot sauce (the classic flavor) because I really like the flavor and heat level.
Note 2: If you prefer a thinner dressing, whisk in additional water, one teaspoon at a time, until the dressing reaches the desired consistency.
Note 3: A drizzle of sweetness is all you need. I used agave nectar, but honey is also a good option. Heads-up: Honey is not vegan, so opt for agave if following a vegan diet.
