I really should have known when I was at Trader Joes... Hummus is pretty much always made with olive oil and this for some reason is made with canola oil. Personally, I prefer olive oil because it is better for you and gives a better taste. I bought it a month or two ago and have not been able to bring myself to eat it. Maybe hummus was not meant as salad dressing or maybe this just isn't good, the smell is just not appealing. Perhaps if you want hummus on your salad you should check out one of the very many varieties of hummus TJs carries. I'm pretty sure that they would be better than this one.
