Loaded Chickpea Salad

Prep

Total

Yield 3 Servings

This is similar to egg salad or tuna salad, but with chickpeas! Serve in a lightly steamed collard green, bib lettuce leaf, a wrap, or on top of a salad. This recipe is very flexible and forgiving! Add ingredients or spices that you may enjoy and create a whole new flavor!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Mash chickpeas in a large bowl with a fork or pulse in a food processor until chunky (to preference)
  2. Mix in the rest of the ingredients
  3. Taste and adjust salt and pepper, if needed.
  4. Enjoy with celery, in a lettuce wrap, or as a sandwich!

Notes

Reduce or eliminate sea salt and capers to lower sodium level. I like Chosen Foods Coconut Oil Mayo, but you can also use a vegan mayo or make your own! I have substituted with a homemade cashew based mayo which works great as well. Any modifications will change the nutritional content listed.
