Asian Chickpea Salad

I’m a sucker for chickpea salads.  So delicious in a pita or wrap or on bread.  Here’s another delightful one!  Love the Asian peanuty twist!  For a more filling sandwich, you could even add some chopped peanuts.


  • 2 cans chickpeas, rinsed and drained, then mashed
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • 2 green onions, green parts only, chopped
  • 1 cup diced red cabbage
  • 2 Tbsp sesame seeds
  • 2 Tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 tsp ginger powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 3 Tbsp reduced sodium tamari, or to taste
  • 1 tsp honey or liquid sweetener of choice
  • 2 tsp rice vinegar

Combine mashed chickpeas, carrots, celery, green onions, red cabbage and sesame seeds.

Whisk together second ingredient list.  Pour dressing over the salad and stir well until completely combined.  Serve in a pita or wrap or on bread, topped with lettuce or any other salad fixins.
