refreshing spring hummus

By: Mandy Kellogg Rye, Waiting on Martha

Spring has sprung! From ample sunshine and sandal weather to seasonal blooms and farmers market fare, get inspired and bask in all that spring has to offer. Let Caldrea’s Sweet Pea fragrance, a soothing and gentle combination of chamomile, bergamont, rose, and coriander, sweep you away to easy front porch living.

Pluck fragrant mint leaves from the garden and pick up sugar snap peas from the market for mint and pea hummus—a fresh take on a favorite dip for crisp veggies. Spend the afternoon gathering sweet pea blooms for a cheerful centerpiece and leisurely stirring up a pitcher of sun tea. Invite friends over for a light dinner beneath the glow of the fireflies. This flavorful hummus, inspired by Caldrea’s Sweet Pea scent, also makes the perfect addition to a spring picnic or patio potluck.
