I found this recipe on a can of "Bush's" garbanzo beans. This is one of my favorite lunches now. Tossed on top of some lettuce or stuffed into a pita. Let me kow if you try any successful variations.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 (16 ounce) cans chickpeas, drained (garbanzo beans)
  • 1 (9 ounce) can tuna
  • 12 cup finely chopped celery
  • 14 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 13 cup balsamic vinaigrette
  • 14 teaspoon salt
  • 14 teaspoon pepper (freshly cracked if you have it)
  • 1 medium tomatoes, diced


  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl.
  2. For best results let it marinate at least one hour before serving.

Great! Did everything the same except only used one can of chickpeas. My husband especially loves it.

Quick, delicious and healthy! I used red wine vinegar b/c that's all I had and also topped it with some reduced fat feta cheese (just b/c I love the combination of chickepeas and fet) Will definitely make again. Thanks!

Delicious salad! I followed your recipe exactly, but used red wine vinegar instead of balsamic. I also went ahead and added some fresh oregano and feta because I had them on hand and thought they may be a tasty addition. WOW! So, so good and so fresh! Thanks so much for sharing! I'll definitely be making this again! Delish!
