Chickpea “Tuna” Salad

If you normally don’t eat fish/meat like me, but still want that tuna/chicken salad taste and texture; I hope you give this recipe a try! I used chickpeas, simple spices, and veggies to give some crunch and a ton of flavor. Who said eating more plant based foods has to be boring?
