Chopped Salad in a Pocket
In a medium bowl, combine squash, broccoli, tomatoes, olives, and parsley; toss with salad dressing. Divide among six airtight storage containers or resealable plastic bags. Cover or seal and chill overnight.Advertisement
To prepare the hummus: In a food processor, combine navy or cannellini beans (white kidney beans); Italian salad dressing; and brown mustard. Cover and process until smooth and spreadable. (Or mash beans with a potato masher or fork. Stir in salad dressing and mustard.) Transfer to an airtight storage container. Cover and chill for up to 1 week.
