Delicious Chickpea Lunch Salad

Looking for easy and delicious lunch ideas?
Look no further! This salad travels well and packs a big nutritional punch. High in fiber and protein, this salad will hold you all afternoon. I like it over mixed greens or in a wrap. 

This recipe is based on a recipe from, "The Vegan Table," Colleen Patrick-Goodreau.

Ingredients

2 cans (15oz) chickpeas, drained and rinsed

½ cup eggless mayonnaise (or to taste)  I like Just Mayo

1 medium red pepper, finely chopped

2 carrots, peeled and finely chopped

2 celery stalks, finely chopped

2 tablespoons parsley, finely chopped

1 cup walnuts, chopped

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

salt and pepper to taste

 

Directions

Grind chickpeas in a food processor or blender down to small flaky pieces.

In a large sized bowl, combine first 8 ingredients and mix well.  Season with salt and pepper.

 

Yield: 4-6 servings
