chickpea salad

This chickpea salad is amazing. If you’re looking for a quick, easy and delicious recipe for lunch or meal prep then look no further! It has great texture and the flavours work so well together. It’s made with similar ingredients to a tuna salad, including vegan mayo and raw onions. This recipe is a super healthy and filled with plant based protein! I don’t know about you, but sometimes we just want something quick and easy to satisfy our cravings. This doesn’t take long at all to prep and has zero cook time. Plus you can make it all in one bowl. (Who doesn’t love less clean up?!)

We had this chickpea salad served as a sandwich with fresh crisp lettuce! It would also be great served on a bed of greens or on its own. This recipe saves great in the fridge as well, just pack in an airtight container and you’ll have lunches ready to go! We hope you enjoy this simple recipe as much as we did. We all live very busy lives and our schedules can get very hectic. Sometimes, you don’t have to sacrifice flavour to save time!

P.S. – Another favourite of ours is our potato salad, check that out here!
