So creamy and delicious you won’t believe it’s not the real deal!
Use whatever can or jar of chickpeas you have on hand. It doesn’t have to be exactly 13oz. If you have more chickpeas than the recipe calls for, simply add more of the other ingredients.
This is a very simple, even basic, chickpea “tuna” salad. I always make it like this and then play with toppings. But you can definitely upgrade the actual salad.
Popular ingredients that you can include are: chopped scallions or red onion, chopped capers, chopped cornichons or dill pickles, chopped peppers or even sun-dried tomatoes.
Lighten up the recipe by using yogurt instead of mayonnaise.
Make the recipe vegan by using vegan mayonnaise or some tahini.
