  • 2 cups canned chickpeas
  • ½ ripe avocado
  • ¼ cup chopped celery
  • ¼ cup chopped red pepper
  • ¼ cup chopped dill pickle
  • ¼ cup chopped red onion
  • 3 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 3 tbsp tahini
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 cup coleslaw mix (shredded carrot and cabbage)
  • 2 cups romaine lettuce


  • Start by mashing the chickpeas in a large bowl. They don’t need to all be completely mashed. I mash about ¾ of the chickpeas and leave the rest whole.
  • Add the avocado and mash it in.
  • Mix in the celery, red pepper, dill pickle, and red onion.
  • In a separate small bowl, mix together the Dijon mustard, tahini, maple syrup, and lemon juice. Once it is mixed, pour it onto the chickpea mixture and stir it in.
  • Finally, mix in the coleslaw mix and romaine lettuce.


Feel free to add any other chopped veggies you like!
This salad is great on its own, or you can use it to make a chickpea salad sandwich.
