The smooth-textured, freshly prepared hummus made for a great appetizer. Diced and roasted red peppers topped the ground chickpeas. The pita bread was fresh and homemade.

The watermelon salad featured grilled watermelon, greens. julienned jicama and carrots, sliced tomatoes and cucumbers as well as almonds and sunflower seeds. It was lightly tossed in a refreshing vinaigrette dressing.
