Let’s look a little closer at hummus
The definition of hummus, per dictionary.com is:
It all started with a man by the name of Zohar Norman and a desire to start a hummus industry within the United States. Backed by a handful of partners and prior success with an Israeli brand of packaged salads and spreads, Zohar’s endeavors sparked the humble beginnings of today’s largest producer of hummus. We’re talking about our red-lidded favorite: Sabra.
