  • 1 15 oz can chickpeas rinsed and drained
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted sunflower seeds
  • 1 stalk celery diced
  • 1 medium carrot grated
  • 2 green onions sliced
  • 3 tablespoons Tofu Cashew Mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon sweet pickle relish
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon Mustard
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon dried dill
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt
  • teaspoon black pepper
  • Whole grain bread
  • Lettuce
  • Tomato


  • Mash the chickpeas in a bowl or pulse in a food processor to chop up. Do not puree; there should still be chunks of chickpea.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and stir together to combine well.
  • Spoon the chickpea salad onto the whole wheat bread. Top with lettuce, tomatoes, and any other vegetables you desire.
