This Vegan Tuna Salad is made with cooked chickpeas and absolutely delicious! Dolphin-safe, tuna-free, and void of any major ocean contaminants! It’s sure to be a hit with the family and even non-vegans.
I kept it as simple as possible with only 5 ingredients. The kelp granules really give it the “tuna” flavor, but you can also use diced up nori or seaweed snacks. Kelp granules can be ordered on Amazon or carried at most local grocery stores like Sprouts.
If you don’t have vegan mayo on hand, you can substitute olive oil in this recipe. I recently picked up the Chosen Foods Vegan Mayo and enjoy it in recipes like this.
I love this Vegan Tuna Salad served on Dave’s Killer Bread 21 Whole Grains & Seeds or Milton’s Multigrain Crackers!
