You know what happened next.
Yup, I read it, realized I had all the basic ingredients here, and since I was going to my usual Friday night gathering I had to make it and take it.
So I did.
And tasted it as I was putting the recipe together, and changed a few things around just a tad, mostly for my own taste before serving it and it was well received. Let me climb up on a soapbox here and say, that if you are trying out a new recipe and you taste it, and it's not quite to your taste, trust your taste buds, they know you, and don't be afraid of changing the recipe a little. I've even been know to make something and take part of it aside to experiment on it. And sometimes the experiments work and sometimes they don't.
My friends are so good about trying out new things, and passing comments on them.
Following is the recipe I followed, and in blue to the side, how I changed it up, cause I could and I did.
Italian-style hummus with diced tomatoes
