falafel and hummus salad

Simple, fresh, quick and easy, this falafel and hummus salad takes just minutes to make and is great for packed lunches and picnics too.

You can use store-bought falafels and hummus if you prefer, or you can make your own. I have recipes for hummus and roasted garlic hummus, both work well in this salad.
