Homestyle Vegan "Chickun" Salad
This 9-ingredient Homestyle "Chick-un" Salad uses plenty of nutritious ingredients, packing it with plant based protein and fiber. Use it for sandwiches, wraps or even on its own for a satisfying and filling meal. Not to mention, it's perfect for meal prep and only takes 10 minutes to throw together!
Now that it's the summer time, I have been craving salads. I remember ordering Chicken Salad Sandwiches from Tim Hortons in the summer as a kid and had a sudden craving for one. Since I don't eat meat, I replaced the chicken with chickpeas which still gives the salad a bite. Plus, it's high in protein and fiber so it's actually satisfying! I like to fill my wraps and sandwiches up with this salad, but it's also great over a bed of lettuce and spinach.
This Chick-un salad has so many textures which I love. The chickpeas have a nice tender bite, the almonds give it a crunch, and the grapes and celery give it a refreshing burst of additional flavours of sweet and salty. And then on top of that, you have the delciious creamy dill dressing!
I hope you give this Vegan Chickun Salad a go & love them as much as I do because it's:
