Chickpea "Tuna" Salad
Recipe Intro From alexawhatsfordinner

Who knew that chickpeas made such a delightful replacement for tuna in a tuna salad sandwich?! You won't even come close to missing the tuna in this delicious vegan rendition of one of my lunchtime favorites. I personally don't like celery or raw red onion, but feel free to throw those in there if you so desire. Instead, I opted for shallots, garlic, green onion, fresh tomatoes, cornichon pickles, and dill. Slather this mixture on some lovely pieces of toast and you've got your new favorite lunch
