Sharing is caring!

If you're wondering what to dip in hummus, we've got 25 great ideas for you!

Hummus is the best! It's a blended chickpea dip with a sesame paste (tahini), olive oil, and lemon juice. There are all sorts of hummus blends that include things like red pepper, spinach, roasted pine nuts, roasted meat, or artichokes.

These hummus dipping items will work for all kinds of savory hummus. If you've found a dessert hummus (like chocolate), I'd recommend fruit or crackers, but for our purposes - consider this list is for regular hummus and other savory blends!
