Chickpea Chick'n Salad

What the heck is wrong with me? I often wondered why people kept asking me for my Chickpea Chick'n Salad recipe when they could easily go to the website. That is until I realized it's NOT ON MY WEBSITE---until now.
This is something I have always just thrown together and never wrote out. Apologies.
It's only 7 simple ingredients and now you have it in writing.



  • 2 14 oz cans of chickpeas, drained and rinsed (3 cups)
  • 1/3 cup diced red onion
  • 3 celery stalks, cut to 1/2" pieces
  • 1/4 cup dill relish
  • 2-3 tablespoons tahini
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • pinch of salt
  • freshly crushed ground pepper
  • 1/3 cup roughly chopped walnuts


To a large bowl add all the ingredients except the walnuts. I find using my hands is easiest (please refer to video) to fold ingredients together and mash most of the chickpeas as well. When you get everything well mixed, add the walnuts and gently fold them in as well. Taste and adjust for flavor. Allow to chill in fridge for at least an hour and enjoy.

Keeps well in the fridge in a sealed container up to 7 days.

Makes 4 cups.
