Matt and I stopped in for lunch at the Sierra Nevada Brewery restaurant in Chico, CA, and after we finished our giant sampler of beers, Matt ordered their flatbread and hummus salad for lunch.  He loved it, and has been asking me to make it ever since.  It’s a fun way to serve salad, and very simple to prepare if you buy pre-made hummus. I cut the flatbread into wedges like pizza slices – before putting the salad on top – so they are easy to grab while I’m eating the salad. As with any salad you can add or subtract ingredients based on your taste and what’s seasonally available and fresh. Enjoy.
