Mashed Chickpea Salad

This MASHED CHICKPEA SALAD aka VEGAN MOCK TUNA SALAD is a perfect dish to eat as a dip, or atop sandwiches on a nice bed of lettuce and tomatoes.  It’s texture and flavor makes this salad a suitable alternative to traditional tuna-fish salad.  It’s a good source of vegetable based protein and it's high in fiber… healthy and hearty.
