Chickpea Salad...a.k.a Plant Based "Chicken" Salad

Chickpeas are by far one of the most versatile legumes. You can use it for hummus, salad toppings, crunchy snacks, sandwich fillers. I'll stop there before I completely turn into Bubba from Forrest Gump. Making chickpeas the star attraction in the salad is a perfect way to mimic the texture of Chicken Salad or Tuna Salad. 


2 cups of cooked chickpeas

1/4 cups of sauerkraut 

1 celery stalk, minced

1 tbsp of tahini

1-2 tbsp of vegan mayo

Juice from 1 lemon

1/4 tsp of paprika

Salt to taste


Mash all the ingredients in a bowl
