chickpea-salad

This Chickpea Salad is my go to recipe for an easy, tasty and satisfying sandwich filling that also tastes great added to mixed green salads! I have even used it as a dip once or twice… The kelp granules, which are available at natural food stores, lend a savory taste with only a fraction of the sodium in salt. It can be omitted to reduce the sodium content of the recipe. The recipe does include other ingredients that are typically high sodium but if used in small amounts as described below can help to minimize the salt and maximize the flavor the ingredients contribute. If you cook the chickpeas yourself you can avoid all of the salt associated with canned chickpeas. Using the crock pot can make this a super easy task!

Recipe Notes
This recipe was inspired by the Tuna Free Sandwich Filling recipe found in Vegan Planet by Robin Robertson.  My copy of this cookbook has been on my shelf for quite some time and is well worn. There is a revised edition available as well which is on my extensive Amazon wish list. How many cookbooks is too many? 😁
