I used one can of chickpeas, well rinsed and drained. I put them in a bowl with 1 to 2 tablespoons of canola mayo, some chopped up pickles, a splash of cider vinegar and some salt and pepper to taste. Then I broke out my handy potato masher. I mashed all the ingredients together but you can use a fork, blender or food processor. It all depends on how smooth you want your salad. I left it a bit chunky this time and I also forgot to put in some celery.
Go ahead and have some fun with your chickpeas. Prepare them in the manner that you usually prepare tuna. You are going to really enjoy this and you may never crack open another can of tuna!
