Chickpea Salad (aka Fake Tuna Salad)

One of my favorite, easy to make, go-to meals is this fake tuna salad recipe. I often make a big batch of this the night before, using a portion for dinner and bringing the leftovers for lunch at the crag the following day. It’s super versatile – you can eat it as a salad, make cold sandwiches with greens and tomato, or (my favorite) make a grilled “tuna” melt sandwich.

Chickpea Salad (aka Fake Tuna Salad)

15 oz. garbanzo beans (mashed)

2 tbsp. mayonnaise

2 tsp. spicy brown mustard

1 tbsp. pickles (chopped)

1/2 onion (chopped)

In a medium bowl, combine beans, mayonnaise, mustard, pickles, onions, and add salt and pepper to taste. Mix well.

*I make variations of this recipe depending on the ingredients I have available. I will leave out pickles and add in diced tomatoes, as I often  have a can of those on hand.

Dirtbag Tip: Save mustard and mayonnaise packets from restaurants to use in this recipe!
