I never would have thought one thing I would miss when I cut meat and dairy from my diet was a tuna salad sandwich, but I do.
This recipe is a good replacement for this and is a lot healthier.
It can easily be made in the beginning of the week and work for a quick lunch or a great snack with carrots and cucumber slices for the whole week.
Chickpea Salad Sandwich
2 Cans of Chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1 red bell pepper, diced
½ medium onion, diced
2 celery stalks, diced
2 tablespoons dill pickle relish
½ teaspoon of garlic powder
½ teaspoon of onion powder
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of smoked paprika
2 tablespoons of brown mustard
Put chickpeas in a bowl, and mash with a fork or potato masher. Mash until beans are smooth. Add all other ingredients and mix in. You can spread this on pitas or bread. Enjoy!
