My family loves vegetarian chicken salad but we had the privilege of trying a vegan chicken salad made with chickpeas not long ago and my husband fell in love. So I decided to recreate the recipe and build a healthier sandwich than before.
Does your family love sandwiches?
How about making easy sandwich spreads?
This chickpea chicken salad recipe is so easy. You only need five ingredients:
- 1 can of rinsed chickpeas, mashed
- 2 stalks of celery
- 1/4 to 1/2 white onion
- 1 T fresh dill
- 2 T vegan mayonaise
I mixed it all up in one bowl and seasoned with salt and pepper. Voila!
My husband and daughter like their “chicken” salad just like this – five ingredients and so simple. We spread it on a 100% whole wheat Oroweat® Sandwich Thins® Rolls, which taste great!
But, my Little Man and I prefer adding grapes to our mock chicken salad recipe. So I quartered 10 grapes and added that to our chickpea chicken salad and it was so yummy!
My Little Man even ate the entire sandwich. So this recipe is kid tested and approved by a two year old boy. Look how cute he is with his sandwich.
I took this awesome simple recipe a step further and added 1/2 T of curry powder to my vegan chickpea chicken salad. I love this fun twist on chicken salad. Curry Powder packs a great flavor in a small amount and it is a flavor I love.
