Chickpeas can make a great replacement for chicken or tuna in this easy cold salad. Loaded with protein, chickpeas can offer 20grams of protein in 1/2cup serving! I can’t get enough of this as a topping for a green salad or a side or main dish for meals. Also makes a great sandwich filling.
1-2 15oz cans of chickpeas, drained and rinsed (or use fresh soaked chickpeas like the ones from Bob’s Red Mill!
2-3 stalks of celery, finely chopped
2-3 TBSP vegan mayonaise
1-2 TBSP dijon mustard
1/4 chopped red onion (optional)
1-2 TBSP chopped fresh dill (optional)
pinch of chile powder or curry powder (optional)
salt and pepper to taste
Mash drained chickpeas with a potato masher or in a food processor until roughly chopped and no whole chickpeas remain.
Stir in remaining ingredients and enjoy!
