"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."
"More folks need to give this recipe a try. Absolutely wonderful. I toasted the walnuts first. I threw the chopped carrots and celery and Veganaise in the processor and gave a good few pulses to get a good mix. I also added a bit of mustard and sweet relish to the mix. Yummy!!
"I enjoyed this for a nice lunch. The walnuts were good, I might try them toasted for a change. Thanks! Made for the May Spain/Portugal game."
