Vegetarian Chickpea Salad Recipe

Refreshing Chickpea Salad With Apples and Pecans

For a taste of Spring in the middle of Winter, spruce up your salad with this protein-rich spread fortified with an entire can of garbanzo beans, aka chickpeas. The pecans and apple pieces give this dish a crisp, fresh feeling.

This spread can be served many ways, but we like to use it as a replacement for tuna salad — perfect for all of you vegetarians out there. Try this chickpea salad on its own, with crackers or crudités as dip, or as a gluten-free wrap as demonstrated in this video featuring Chad Sarno, Whole Foods chef and coauthor of The New York Times bestseller Crazy Sexy Kitchen.
