Vegan Chickpea Salad

Vegan Chickpea Salad

This gluten-free and low carb chickpea salad recipe makes a great fiber-packed, vegan alternative to egg, tuna, or chicken salad. Chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans, are a nutritional powerhouse. They are most commonly recognized in the form of hummus. However, they are a versatile legume that can be used in many creative ways. Chickpeas are extremely high in fiber, at 6 grams per 1/2 cup, that's hard to beat. Fiber is linked to decreased risk of heart disease, diabetes, and obesity.
