Most dips, spreads and cheeses taste better on a crusty piece of bread. During Monday morning's #Weekendeats chat on Twitter, participants shared some serious spreads. And surprisingly, most of them were green. Here are the highlights:

Susan Orlins claims her hummus is "the best homemade hummus." Try her recipe and decide for yourself. There is also a recipe for "black on black" hummus from the blog made with black sesame tahini.

Orly from the blog shared a recipe for a vibrant green, spring pea and ricotta spread on crostini. The spread includes peas, shallots, garlic, lemon, tarragon and more over a crispy baguette. 

Beth Lee from the blog was inpsired by Orly's spring pea spread and made her own green concoction. Lee made a spread with edamame and roasted tomato on crostini.

Carol Sacks from the blog also made her own green spread with broccolini, garlic and lemon.

In addition to the black hummus, the blog, also shared a picture of homemade smokey mountain "cheez." And to add some meat to the party, Ron Fong shared a photo of his salumi plate from Bestia with a nice dollup of mostarda.
