Vegan Chickpea Tuna Salad

Chickpea Tuna Salad is one of those things that people can get very particular about…some like sweet pickles, or dill pickles, I’ve even seen nuts. This is your basic go-to recipe. Its the way I like it, pretty straightforward, but go forth and make it your own!

Favorite lunch alert! Sometimes you can get in a rut with lunch, and though this is by no means a new idea, its a great one. And every once in a while you just needed to be reminded of what a delicious situation a ‘tuna’ salad sandwich can be. And this one is even better because no tuna were hurt!

Actually, this is a great recipe for a few reasons. It’s fast and easy, it’s high in protein, it’s super satisfying and you can fancy it up with cucumber slices or get all down and dirty with a loaded sandwich. Enjoy!
