Chickpea salad aka faux Tuna salad

This is a great tangy and crunchy salad that you can use in wraps for topping on a salad. It is very filling and full of fiber and protein.

Adapted from Oh She Glows.


  • 1 can chickpeas, drained, lightly mashed
  • 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 1/4 chopped dill pickle
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon regular mustard
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
  • salt and pepper to taste

Put chickpeas in a large bowl and lightly mash.

Add in all other ingredients.

Stir until combined.

Use in wraps or on top salads.

This is a very healthy and easy lunch to make that travels well. It’s also ridiculously inexpensive. It probably cost $2 today to make it.
