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

  • 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.

Everyone in my house loves my signature Chickpea Un-tuna Salad. Piled high with lettuce and tomato on your favorite bread, it’s a fabulous sandwich (I make these for my kids every time they travel!)
