"What did you add to this tuna sandwich?" asked the unsuspecting husband. ;) Delicious!
Easy and healthy! Used whole wheat bread, baby arugula, sprinkle or cracked black pepper. Subbed walnut oil and tried sunflower seeds. Served with tomato soup and fruit salad. Made fro Veg Tag/January. Will make again!

This is a tasty change of pace, and for me was an unexpected combination of flavors. I liked the walnuts especially; for me I want that much texture (my chickpeas were homecooked and VERY soft and thus mashed a lot) and would probably not want to sub sunflower seeds. Thanks so much for posting! Made for Best of 2012 tag.

Wow! What a surprising recipe this turned out to be. It is fabulous. I really loved every bite. I used everything except for the flax seed oil (I was out, but will try it next time). This created a healthy, vegan lunch that truly satisfied. Thank you!

Loved this! I used roasted pumpkin seeds instead of walnuts and left the chickpeas mostly unmashed, and it tasted great. The texture was nice, and it tasted almost like a traditional potato salad. I might even add some chopped hard-boiled eggs to the mixture in the future. [Tagged & Reviewed for BEST OF 2012]

WOW - What a great sandwich! I left out the onions and the optional flaxseed oil. I served this on lightly toasted homemade bread with spinach and a thin slice of tomato - YUM! The combination of the dill and mustard, chickpeas and walnuts was just terrific. Loved this - thanks for sharing a keeper! Made for the Best of 2012 event, recommended by Cookgirl

This was very tasty! I was way hungry and didn't have much to eat in the house 'cause I just moved, but fortunately I had everything to make this. I did add two celery stalks and I had to sub 1 tsp. dry mustard powder for the 1 Tbsp. prepared mustard and I did not add the optional oil. I put it on a whole wheat tortilla with lettuce and tomato. I will definitely be making this again!

This is a great sandwich filling. I omitted the oil just because it's that much fat that isn't really needed and used cilantro for the dill because I'm not a dill lover (in anything other that garlic dill pickles). The walnut crunch is a lovely addition. Add to that the quick and easy factor and you have a real winner. I just put it in a bowl surrounded with assorted crackers and we scooped our way through dinner, yum!

Super Sandwich! I made it just as directed and added one stalk of chopped celery for some crunch. I served it on toasted whole wheat bread with spinach and it was EXCELLENT! It went together so easily that it is destined to be a regular! Thanks for posting!

Yum! I really enjoyed this different chickpea salad! Loved the addition of flax seed and nutritional yeast. I used roasted sunflower seeds for a nice crunch. I just ate it as a salad. Thanks for posting! :)
