Recipe: Carefree Chickpea Salad

This is such an easy recipe…..seriously.  Very quick to throw together if you already have cooked chickpeas.  If not, use a can of chickpeas.  I like to buy organic bulk dried beans and cook them myself, but sometimes I am not so prepared.  That’s why they make canned beans.  I love chickpeas for their neutral flavor and because they offer protein, fiber and calcium to your diet.  This is my vegan version of tuna salad.
