Better-Than-Tuna, Chickpea Salad

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Kozmic Blues

Inspired from the recipe in Vegan Table. "This recipe has all the flavor of the lunchtime staple but leaves the cholesterol, and mercury behind" I usually cut this recipe in HALF, and as you can see from the list of ingredients, that is quite easy to do! I also like to add dill pickle to mine, which I've listed below. Some chopped scallion might be nce too... ^_^

Great salad with lots of veggies! I quartered the recipe and it made two meals for me. I ate as a salad but would be great in a sandwich or with chips or on crackers. I chopped the carrots, celery, walnuts and bell pepper in the food processor. I didn't have dill pickles, so used bread and butter pickles. Thanks for a yummy lunch! Made for the vegetarian swap-Oct. 2011.
