Creamy Chickpea Salad

This is an easy recipe for creamy chickpea salad with vegan mayo, dijon, nutritional yeast, pepperoncini (or dill pickles), crunchy carrots and celery, and more. You can enjoy this vegan chickpea salad on sandwiches, wraps, or even as a snack on crackers.

This creamy chickpea salad recipe is perfect for lunch, camping, picnics or dinner. On those days when it’s blazing hot and you don’t feel like cooking anything, this is the one. You put it between two pieces of your favorite bread, and you’ve got a dreamy, easy vegan chickpea salad sandwich.

By far, this is also one of my favorite vegan road trip meals. Tucked away in our cooler, you’ll always find this creamy chickpea salad. I carry a bag of tortillas separately. And when it’s time for lunch, I put the chickpea salad wraps together. It’s so much easier to eat a wrap on the road than try to eat a sandwich.

Sometimes, I like to jazz it up by adding some fresh herbs, like dill or tarragon. Most of the time, I like to use pepperoncini, because they are a acidic and spicy. Other times, I’m satisfied with adding finely chopped pickle.

15 ounce can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed

¼-⅓ cup vegan mayonnaise

½-1 tsp dijon mustard

1 Tbsp nutritional yeast

1 Tbsp finely chopped peperoncini rings (OR dill pickles)

⅓ cup julienned carrots

1-2 scallions (green part only), chopped

2 Tbsp finely chopped red pepper

2 celery stalks, chopped

2 Tbsp finely chopped fresh parsley

Squeeze of lemon juice

1. First, you’ll prep the chickpeas for the salad. Add the chickpeas to a food processor, and pulse 3 times.  They should be coarsely ground up, but also have some whole chickpeas in the mix (see photo above). Add them to a large mixing bowl. No food processor? Mash some of the chickpeas up with your hands or the back of a spoon in a large mixing bowl.

2.  Add everything else listed in the recipe to the mixing bowl.  Combine, and taste.  Adjust seasonings, if needed.  Serve this vegan creamy chickpea salad on a wrap, on a sandwich or on crackers as a snack.
