Chickpea Salad Sandwich

27 Mar

My recipe collection has been lacking in the lunch department. I tried out this recipe this past weekend and love it. It has the texture of tuna salad, yet is completely vegetarian. You can even make it vegan by substituting the mayo with Vegenaise.

I’m tired of the frozen veggie burgers or a simple salad for lunch. My dear husband is picking up several cans of chickpeas at the grocery store tonight so I can make this sandwich for the rest of the week!

Chickpea Salad Sandwich


  • 15 oz. can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 onion, finely diced
  • 4 Tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp sweet relish
  • 3 tsp fresh dill
  • 1 tsp celery seed

  • cayenne red pepper, to taste (optional)
  • curry powder, to taste (optional)


1. Mash up chickpeas very finely in a medium bowl.

2. Stir in all other ingredients and mix well.

3. Serve with lettuce and tomato on toasted bread.

    Love that. Can’t wait to try it out – I have all of the ingredients, and am in need of a quick dinner tonight. This may just be it! 🙂
