Servings 8 servings


  • 2 cans chickpeas drained and rinsed
  • ¼ cup vegan mayo
  • 2 tbsp. dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp. fresh dill chopped
  • ¼ cup green onions thinly sliced
  • ½ cup celery diced
  • 1 cup red grapes halved
  • ½ cup sliced almonds
  • squeeze of fresh lemon
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Get your ingredients ready. Dice your celery, half your grapes, thinly slice your onions and chop your dill.
  • Drain and rinse the canned chickpeas and add them to a medium sized bowl.
  • With a fork or potato masher mash your chickpeas. You will want to mash them fairly well but can expect there to still be some texture to the mixture.
  • Now to the chickpeas add the rest of your ingredients: your mayo, mustard, dill, celery, grapes, almonds, lemon juice, salt and pepper and mix until well incorporated.
  • Serve as a sandwich, with crackers or on a big salad.
  • Enjoy!


  • If you would like to make this oil free you can add smashed avocado instead of the vegan mayo.
  • I have added craisins or dried cherries to this dish before and it is so tasty! I would add about a 1/4 cup chopped or so if you want to make this addition.
  • This is also great wrapped in a tortilla or served on a bun. If you can find a vegan croissant now that would be magic for this dish!
  • I state to rinse the chickpeas as I have heard that this helps with digestion when working with canned beans and legumes. I have a very sensitive stomach and do see a difference when I take the time to do this step.
