Chickpea Salad Sandwich

Chickpea Salad Sandwich

This “tuna” salad recreation is a huge favorite of mine that I enjoy making for my lunches. I love this recipe because you can toss all of the ingredients into a food processor and quickly pulse to combine. It is ideal for people that are on-the-go and do not have that much time to cook or clean dishes. Simply spread this over your bread of choice with tomato and lettuce (or sprouts) and get ready for a tasty meal!
