  • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) each ground cinnamon, pepper and cayenne pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) prepared hummus
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) packed Ontario Parsley Leaves
  • 2 tbsp (25 mL) apple cider vinegar
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 head Ontario Greenhouse Leaf Lettuce, torn in bite-size pieces
