    Hi folks, quick question... Does anyone know the 'usual' portion size in oz for a hummus & pita appetizer plate? We're adding hummus to our apps menu. Thanks!

    We do a 4oz portion for our hummus starter, I spread it on a 8" plate and drizzle w/ extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle with a bit of paprika and parsley.  Our 'side' of hummus is only 1-1/3oz (red handle disher) this is three of those.
