Introduction

Use this yummy chickpea salad in place of tuna salad or chicken salad! Use this yummy chickpea salad in place of tuna salad or chicken salad!
Number of Servings: 9

Ingredients

    2 cans (drained) chickpeas
    1/3 cup light mayonnaise
    1/3 cup chopped sweet onion
    1/3 cup chopped dill pickles
    1 T. pickle juice
    salt and pepper to taste
    2" square of nori (optional)

Directions

Mash up the chickpeas with a potato masher, or by blending briefly in a food processor. They should have some chunky bits still, but be pretty creamy when stirred. Add the remaining ingredients (except nori) and stir to combine. This recipe makes about nine 1/3 cup servings, but that will vary a tad if you use more or less onion and pickle. If you want this to taste more like tuna salad, then add the nori to the food processor with the chickpeas, or grind it up separately and add it to the salad. This will give a slightly fishy flavor like you would have with tuna salad.
