Chickpeas are quickly becoming a staple in our home, and this quick salad is one of our favorite ways to prepare them. It’s smoky, crunchy, creamy, and wonderful! Use it as a topping for a green salad and you won’t need salad dressing, or use it as a filling for sandwiches or lettuce wraps! Delicious!

for two sandwiches:

1 (15 oz.) can chickpeas, rinsed and drained well

1/3 to 1/2 cup mayonnaise (we use Just Mayo)

1 garlic clove, minced

1/3 cup smoked almonds, coarsely chopped

1 to 2 teaspoons whole grain Dijon mustard

1/2 teaspoon agave syrup

2 green onions, sliced (including the green tops)

1/4 cup chopped celery

1 teaspoon dried tarragon or oregano

1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

salt, to taste

freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Place drained chickpeas in a medium mixing bowl. Mash about half of them using a fork or potato masher. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.

Pile high on your favorite sandwich bread, and top with a little hot sauce, if you wish.

Enjoy!
