Fresh strawberries add a sweet, juicy note and pretty red color to hummus, making it a hit with kids says Executive Chef Bryan Ehrenholm, Manteca (Calif) Unified School District. Grownup diners will also appreciate this new twist on a favorite snack—the strawberries add a healthy dose of vitamin C and just a handful of calories.

1/4 tsp. fresh ground black pepper
