"No-Tuna" Salad Sandwich

One of our most popular recipes of all time, canned chickpeas are transformed into a tangy and creamy “tuna” salad that will trick you into thinking it’s the real deal. Capers, pickles, tahini, and Dijon mustard add complex flavor to the chickpea mash, and extra slices of tomato and lettuce bring freshness to the finished sandwich. You can also enjoy the “tuna” mixture with celery sticks, lettuce cups, or crackers.
