A fresh and easy salad that replaces a traditional tuna salad. This is a healthy vegan version.


  • 1 15-ounce can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
  • 4 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1/4 cup vegan mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons pickle relish
  • 1 teaspoon whole grain mustard
  • 1/4 onion, chopped finely


  1. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the garbanzo beans, celery, mayonnaise, relish, mustard, and onion.
  2. Stir to combine. Use the flat side of a fork to smash some of the beans.
  3. Serve over chopped romaine as a salad entrée, wrapped in a tortilla for a wrap, or on toasted bread for a sandwich.


This salad will keep in the refrigerator in a tightly-sealed container for up to 5 days.
