To Eat: Vegan Chickpea "Chicken" Salad

June 2018 // By Natalie Jean

I am so excited to share this recipe with you today! Mark and I have been trying to eat a little healthier over the last few months and I'd say we've been doing a pretty good job (aside from the pizza we ordered earlier this week at 11pm...oops!)
For lunch the other day I took a classic recipe and gave it a vegan (and tasty) twist! You can use this chickpea "chicken" salad mix to top a salad, make a sandwich on rye bread, fill a pita, or just eat as is. Delicious any way! Plus, pairing it with your favorite flavored seltzer makes it even better. Enjoy!
