Chickpea salad:

  • 1 can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • zest of one lemon
  • one lemon, juiced (about 3 to 4 tablespoons)
  • 1/4 teaspoon granulated garlic (powder)
  • 1 dill pickle, chopped
  • 1 and 1/2 tablespoons dill pickle juice
  • 1/4 - 1/3 cup red onion, diced
  • 1/4 - 1/3 cup red pepper, diced
  • 1/4 cup vegan mayonnaise
  • 1 stalk of celery, diced
  • 1/4 - 1/3 cup grated carrot, (one small carrot)
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds, I use roasted and salted (optional but recommended)
  • 1 and 1/2 tablespoons dried dill or 1/4 cup fresh chopped dill
  • salt and pepper to taste

For sandwiches:

  • bread slices or wraps of choice
  • tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce, sprouts, etc.. (all optional)
  • shredded beets (optional)


  1. Add the chickpeas to a medium bowl
  2. Mash with a potato masher or a fork to consistency you'd like, (see notes*)
  3. Add the rest of the salad ingredients and sun flower seeds if using and mix well. Season with salt and pepper if needed.
  4. Now build your sandwich or wrap and enjoy!


  • You can also use your food processor to combine mixture, add chickpeas first, pulse a few times, then add all veggies , pulse a few more times, until you're happy with the consistency. Then, add to a bowl, with rest of chickpea salad ingredients. Mix well.
  • Optional add ins: sunflower seeds (salted) and or pumpkin seeds. They add a great crunch and nutty flavour
