Insanely Easy Chickpea Salad

Total Time

"Insanely Easy" is right. I don't even need to look at the recipe anymore -- I just eyeball the amounts, and it comes out fine. This is a great substitute for chicken or tuna salad. It's good in sandwiches or spread on crackers. Adapted from The Teen's Vegetarian Cookbook, by Judy Krizmanic.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a bowl, mash chickpeas with a potato masher or fork. Leave some chunks in for texture.
  2. Stir in remaining ingredients until well-combined. This keeps in the refrigerator for several days.

Soo simple and just like eating chicken salad. I had it over lettuce for lunch two days in row :) I went easy on the mayo, using about 1/4 cup just to hold everything together, which worked out great. Made for the I recommend tag game feb. 09.

Yum, great filling for sandwiches. I even made it once and just scooped up into celery sticks instead of eating in a sandwich.
