Ingredients

  • 1 can of chickpeas or garbanzo beans (drained and rinsed)
  • 1/3 cup chopped purple onion
  • 1/2 cup celery chopped small
  • 1/2 cup grated carrots (about 1 large carrot or 6-9 small snacking carrots)
  • 1/3 cup pickles chopped up
  • Optional: GF bread to serve on or enjoy this recipe plain.

For the Dressing:

  • 1 teaspoon spicy brown mustard
  • 1 tablespoon natural tahini
  • 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 2 – 2 1/2 tablespoons water to thin is out (ad very last, you want it to be pretty think so it will mix in and evenly coat everything)

Preparation

  1. First drain and rinse the can of chickpeas and add them to a large mixing bowl. (you can peel the skins off if they bother you but I personally did not)
  2. Using a fork or a potato masher, mash the chickpeas, some chunks are ok but mash as best you can.
  3. Chop up the rest of the ingredients and add them to the bowl. Give it a stir.
  4. Mix up the dressing in a separate small bowl, pour it on top the mixture and stir everything up util it is well coated. (if you like really heavy dressing then double the dressing recipe)
  5. Makes about 4-6 sandwiches worth depending on size of bread.

My dear Mack - Because making this chickpea salad it resembles tuna, even the smell. There are worse things in this world than being irritated because of a name of a recipe! Be thankful NO animal or fish were sacrificed for this meal!
Put your resources to better use please.

WHY is the word TUNA even in the title?

If one is not going to eat tuna, WHY IMITATE IT and make someone who was looking for a new GOOD idea regret clicking?

Just call it GARBANZO BEAN SALAD SANDWICH.

Disappointed in the article and the staff of this site.
