Chickpea Salad Wraps -


We all know of my love for chicken salad.  When I saw this vegetarian version I added it to the menu immediately.  This is more like tuna salad consistency though. In fact, I saw it posted by another blogger who called it the Un-Tuna salad sandwich, Veronica called them Mock Tuna salad.  I compare it to chicken salad only because I love chicken salad so much! 

My daughter ate this on a whole wheat tortilla while I loved it with gluten free crackers.  I loved it but enjoyed it better after it had been in the refrigerator for awhile to firm up.


Chickpea Salad Wraps
Adapted from Veronica's Cornucopia

1 (15 oz) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup celery, diced
1/4 cup roasted, salted sunflower seeds
1/4 cup mayo
3 tbsp. sweet relish (or dill relish)
2 tbsp. lemon juice
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tsp. soy sauce
1/2 tsp. prepared mustard
Salt and pepper to taste

Place everything in a food processor.  Pulse until it is the texture you desire.  I wanted mine with some chunks.  Serve with whole wheat tortillas, bread or crackers.  Refrigerate to firm it up a bit.

  1. I think I'd prefer this firmed up too, Debbi. Love the idea of wrapping it...but it's perfect as a healthy dip as well.

  4. This sounds great! I was at a fancy restaurant in downtown Chicago on Saturday and a bunch of us shared a chickpea crepe. I bet this was very similar to it. It was so good!

  5. Glad you enjoyed it! You're the second person who's made it that I know of--I never know if my craziness is going to be appreciated or not. Glad it was this time! haha
