Star Wars Day Kale Hummus Recipe

Kale hummus dip with crackers

We all know what day it is: May 4th. Most people do not pay much mind to this date, but as any true Star Wars fan knows, this is the day that we wish each other well in harnessing our powers for the good of all space-kind. Indeed, today let us all greet one another as one should most days: “May the fourth be with you”. Get it? It’s like saying, “May the force be with you” but instead of “force”, you say “fourth”. Preeeeeetty clever.
