Hmmm. The original recipe sounded good - chickpeas made into a salad that tastes like tuna. Unfortunately, it doesn't taste anything like tuna salad! But, it tastes good, and I make it often because it's a quick meal, wrapped in a lettuce leaf.
Original Recipe: Chickpea of the Sea
Lemony White Bean Salad
- 1 28oz can of white beans, drained
- 3 ribs celery, finely chopped (about 1 cup)
- 1/2 large onion, finely chopped (about 1/2 cup)
- 1/3 cup mayonnaise
- 1 t. Dijon mustard
- Zest and juice from 1 small lemon
- 1 t. chopped fresh dill
- 1/8 t. ground bay leaves
- salt and pepper to taste
In a large bowl, mash the beans slightly. Add the celery and onion.
In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients and mix well.
Fold the dressing into the beans and taste for seasoning.
