Chickpea Salad


A much better alternative to tuna salad. Much less tuna death. Much less cesium 134 and 137 ingestion.

You could sub dill pickles (McClure's are fantastic!) for the cucumber. And maybe add hot sauce.


  • 30 oz Canned Garbanzo Beans, Rinsed & Drained
  • 2 stalks Celery, Diced Fine
  • ½ English Cucumber, Peeled, Seeded, & Chopped Fine
  • ½c Matchstick Carrots, Chopped Fine
  • 3 tbsp Fresh Lemon Juice
  • ½c Hummus
  • ?? Salt, Pepper, and Dill or Chives


  1. With a potato masher, smash the garbanzos until they're about the consistency of canned tuna.
  2. Sprinkle in salt, pepper, and dill or chives and mix.
  3. Add the lemon juice and mix some more.
  4. Add everything but the hummus and keep mixing.
  5. Finally, add the hummus. You may need more or less to get the consistency you want.
