    Compassionate Chef's Note:

    You wouldn't think tuna salad would be something a person would miss after going vegetarian/vegan, but every now and then, I crave it, and I want something simple - no cooking required! This recipe is perfect for a picnic; quick lunch; or a fast, light dinner. Chickpeas resemble the texture of tuna when you pulse them in a food processor. Spread this on some toasted bread with green leaf lettuce or dip into it with crackers. The best part? It's cholesterol and mercury free and super yummy!

      I really like this recipe, because it's a great canvas. The flavor and texture is very good (the walnuts are a MUST), and it can be tailored to your own taste. Adding lemon juice and dill can make it more tuna-like, and using hot mustard and pickle relish can make it more like a ham salad. My son wasn't crazy about the carrot, so I might swap it with chopped water chestnuts. I will be using this recipe a lot, so thanks!!

      I hate the smell of tuna but I want to like it so bad. I came across this recipe and it's great. I'll make this again and again. I've never tried tuna salad so I can's compare it to this but this is good. I added some cayenne pepper on top and it was perfect. Thanks.

      This was very tasty! I still love tunafish, and this recipe doesn't replace it for me, but this was very good and very easy.
