Chickpea Salad

Chickpea salads are one of my go-to quick and easy lunches to meal prep for the week. They’re made from mashed chickpeas, crunchy veggies, and a few simple seasonings.

Instead of using mayo in my traditional recipe, I added tahini in this one for a delicious, nutty flavor.

These mediterranean inspired wraps are full of plant-based protein, and taste delicious in a wrap, sandwich, or served with your favorite crackers.

I filled my wraps with a homemade tahini sauce, some harissa for added spice, lettuce, the chickpea mixture and feta cheese. These wraps can easily be made gluten-free by substituting your favorite gluten-free wrap, and can be made vegan by using a plant-based feta cheese.

What you’ll need to make Mediterranean Chickpea Salad

This chickpea salad is so easy to make. You’ll need just a few simple ingredients:

  • canned chickpeas
  • tahini (sesame paste)
  • fresh lemon juice
  • celery
  • red onion
  • parsley
  • black pepper, salt and cumin

Start by mashing the chickpeas in a bowl then adding in the chopped veggies, spices and flavorings. Mix it all together and enjoy it all week long!

This recipe is seriously such a favorite of mine and has been on repeat all month! I can’t wait for you all to try it.
