Mike Smalis, owner of Greek Gourmet Marketplace, says his hummus recipe is so top-secret that he won’t even share it with his wife. The inventive flavors, such as Cilantro Jalapeño, Buffalo, and Horseradish, have recently become an obsession amongst many of our staffers.

Smalis’ favorite? “Honey Habañero, or Classic,” he says. “It alternates.” Our dippers of choice are fresh vegetables — cucumber slices, black radishes, or carrots.

Pop into the Squirrel Hill location to see Smalis or head to one of many convenient locations that carry his hummus, including Giant Eagle Market District, Giant Eagle Cranberry, Whole Foods Market in East Liberty and Wexford, Nature’s Way Market in Greensburg, and Coffee Tree Roasters.

Greek Gourmet Marketplace, 2130 Murray Ave., Squirrel Hill. 412.422.2998.

+ Do more than dip!
To dress greens, Smalis mixes hummus with olive oil. Blend a spicier flavor, like Cilantro Jalapeño, with oil and herbs to make a mouth-watering marinade for fish or chicken skewers!
