This chickenless salad is a tasty vegetarian spin on chicken salad, using chickpeas instead.


  • 1 540-mL can chickpeas , drained
  • 1 stalk celery , chopped
  • 1/4 cup pickle relish , or chopped pickle (any kind)
  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise , (or more, if desired)
  • 2 tsp prepared mustard
  • salt , to taste
  • black pepper , to taste


  • Lightly crush the chickpeas in a bowl with a fork or potato masher. You just want to break them up a bit so don’t mash them to a purée — leave plenty of texture.
  • Add the chopped celery, pickle relish or pickle, mayonnaise and mustard.
  • Mix well, then taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper if desired.
