Who knew chickpeas could taste so good! This chickpea salad sandwich has so many fresh herbs, it’s refreshing, fragrant, filling, and plant based. With healthy fats like avocado and Greek yogurt, you’ll love how tangy and satisfying this salad is.
Avocado Green Goddess Chickpea Salad
Ever since I stopped eating meat, I’ve been craving only one thing: my Avocado Green Goddess Chicken Salad. It’s the perfect summer sandwich – it’s crunchy, it’s filling, it has such a great refreshing fragrance thanks to the herbs, and it’s protein packed and overall a nutritious meal.
So what’s a primarily plant based woman to do? Make a veggie version! I chose here to use chickpeas, because chickpeas have a hearty consistency and when you mash them but leave some of the chickpeas mostly whole, the consistency is chunky like a chicken.
I don’t have much else to say about this chickpea salad other than you have to make it. Like, it’s a must make this summer. I will warn you, it does take a little prep work but it’s totally worth it. I saved my chickpea salad in the fridge for 3 days and on the third day, it did start to brown, so I would recommend saving these for 1-2 days max.
You can enjoy it in lettuce cups, on some greens, in a wrap, or as a sandwich, as I did!
