Chickpea salad lunch idea

I get so many messages for this recipe when I share it on Instagram, so here it is ladies and gents! Your new favorite lunch! If you love chicken salad, you’re going to love this. I came up with this recipe when I was working on cutting down my meat consumption. Swapping out the chicken for chickpeas was a super easy swap to make and still equally delicious! This lunch is so easy to prep and an easy option to take to work. You can mix it up by eating it with crackers, on a croissant or with your favorite bread!

Instructions:
Rinse and drain chickpeas, put them in a large bowl and mash with a fork for texture.

Dice up equal parts celery and grapes, add to bowl

Mince onion, add to bowl. You can add more or less onion to taste, I prefer less onion in mine.

Add mayonnaise or Vegenaise 1 tablespoon at a time till you reach desired amount. Start small, you can always add more but you can’t take it away.

Salt and pepper to taste.

Enjoy with crackers or make a sandwich with your favorite bread!

You can easily make this into chicken salad, use 1-2 cups of cooked chicken. I try to make the grapes, celery and chickpeas or chicken about equal parts. You can adjust quantities based on how much you want to make! This recipe usually gets me through about 2-3 lunches! Easy make ahead item, it will stay good in the fridge for a few days.
