Chickpea Salad Recipe

Chickpea Salad

I adapted this recipe from something called Vegetarian Chickpea Sandwich Filling. The first night we had it in pitas with veggies and balsamic vinegar. The rest was eaten for lunches on crackers. Its a similar idea to egg salad or tuna salad. It can be made vegan if you use vegenaise instead of mayonaise.

*1 can garbanzo beans or equivalent (we cook them instead of using canned)
*1 stalk celery, chopped
*1/2 onion, chopped
*1/2 green pepper, chopped
*1-2 spoonfuls mayo (or vegenaise)
*A little squirt of mustard
*1 Tablespoon lemon juice
*1 teaspoon dried dill weed
*salt and pepper, to taste

1. Place chickpeas in bowl and mash with fork.
2. Mix in the rest of the ingredients using mayo to make it the right consistancy.
3. Put in pitas, on sandwiches, on crackers, etc. and enjoy!
