Chickpea Salad Sandwiches


This vegetarian riff on a classic chicken salad sandwich is both satisfying and loaded with flavor, thanks to the tangy lemon juice, stone-ground mustard and fresh herbs. We added a sprinkle of roasted pepitas and a handful of hearty baby kale for texture and crunch. Serve on toasted whole wheat bread or with vegetables and crackers for a wholesome meal.

Active: 15 min
Yield: 2 sandwiches (1 1/2 cups chickpea salad)


  • One 15-ounce can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise or vegan mayonnaise spread
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon roughly chopped fresh dill
  • 2 teaspoons capers

  • 1 cup lightly packed baby kale
  • 4 slices whole wheat bread, toasted


  1. Mash the chickpeas, mayonnaise, lemon juice, dill, capers, mustard, turmeric, 1/2 teaspoon salt and several grinds of pepper in a large bowl with a fork or potato masher until beans are crushed and mixture is slightly chunky, scrapping down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula as needed. Taste and adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper.
  2. Spread the salad onto 2 pieces of toasted whole wheat bread, top with toasted pepitas and baby kale and then sandwich with the remaining 2 pieces of bread. Serve immediately.
