Chickpea Tuna Salad

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by smyleeg

My boyfriend and I came up with this while trying to figure out a good recipe for this contest. A perfect summer snack, light lunch or guest appetizer. You may want to cut up the tomato, onion and bell pepper into chunks to make blending easy but it is not necessary. A teaspoon of lemon juice and tabasco sauce can be added for zing. Prep time varys depending on whether you are cutting up the veggies or not. My family enjoyed this very much with lettuce and stuffed in a tortilla. Very easy to make and very good! :)

This was very easy to prepare. I planned to serve this as a spread on crackers as part of a snack tray. I found the texture of this salad a little odd for my tastes. (I think it was the garbanzo beans). I did add the suggested Tabasco to spice it up a little. I also added dried parsley flakes to perk it up visually.
