FINDING COMFORT IN THIS CHICKPEA SALAD SANDWICH
This mixture is reminiscent of a tuna salad, but much healthier, and also tastier! It also benefits our oceans by leaving the tuna out of your recipes and reaching for the chickpeas instead. This is a super filling meal, perfect for a summer picnic or BBQ. You can also choose to have it just as a side dish, rather than making it a sandwich. Whichever way you choose you will find joy in every bite.
