The first time I tried to get the kids to try hummus, they looked at me as if I were asking them to go skiing naked. But when they tried it at a friends' house, well, they decided they loved it. (Sometimes that's a great tool for coping with picky eaters, by the way.) Serve this hummus dip with pita chips, fresh vegetables or crackers.
