Chickpea ‘Tuna’ Salad

Chickpea ‘Tuna’ Salad

When I changed my diet a few years back, there were a few things I really missed and tuna salad was one of them. That inspired me to create this recipe and I am totally obsessed with it! This dish has become one of my go-to favorite lunches.  I make a bowl of it almost every week to have on hand. It’s awesome on top of salad greens or in a wrap topped with micro sprouts!

There is no “tuna” in this yummy salad, but take my word for it, you won’t miss it!

  • 1 can/box of chick peas, rinsed and mashed
  • 1 stalk of celery, chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/4 cup watermelon radish OR 1/4 cup red pepper chopped
  • 1 medium sized pickle (dill or half sour) chopped
  • 2 tablespoons Veganaise (vegan mayonnaise)
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • Sprinkle of fresh thyme or dill

Mix all ingredients together for a great and easy snack.
Eat plain or serve on a collard leaf or butter lettuce leaf (use these leaves to form a wrap), as a side dish with sliced baby tomatoes, or on celery stalks.

    I had this with Joanne and it is good! This from one who approached it with misgiving!

      It’s so great that you were open minded and got to reap the rewards of trying something new! 🙂

    This looks delicious. What kind of vegan mayo would you recommend?

      Hi Sarah!

      It is one of my fav salads! I usually use the organic version of veganise! Let me know how you like it when you make it! 🙂
