You can spread this on pitas or bread. Enjoy!


Plant based food, micro brews, punk rock, and running are what I am about.

    I’m eating this right now and I love it. I don’t know if it was intentional but you list 1/2 tsp of salt twice which I translated that as something spicy which really makes it for me.

    Hubby and I made this for lunch today. We were a little leery, but it turned out AMAZING! The only addition is that we put some sliced avocado on it also :) This was a great lunch and it will be added to our go-to recipes :)

    Just made this for the next Plant Based on a Budget Challenge meal plan. Super good! I had to modify it to meet my budget by taking out the pickle, used 1/3 of a green bell pepper instead, doubled the mustard and used fresh garlic. I loved it!!

    I just made this last night and added a sheet of roasted seaweed, it looked,smelled and tasted like tuna fish! So excited to have an old familiar comfort food back….just healthier!

    This is absolutely the best Chickpea Salad I’ve ever tasted. I won’t use any other recipe, I’ve found the best. I made this when I did week 2 of the challenge. Terrence you really put your foot in this one. The best ever.

    My key — using fresh onion and garlic in this. Yum!

    I started the plant based diet last week. Everything’s been pretty tasty so far. I love this chickpea salad. Never had a chick pea salad before. I made some minor adjustments: fresh garlic, leftover cilantro from last week, apple cider vinegar (for more of a kick), red pepper flakes and dill. Very tasty. Will certainly make this again.
