"Mock tuna salad sandwiches are a great alternative for people who don't care for the taste of tuna. An unTuna salad is so easy to make with chickpeas instead of tuna. There is plenty of protein and flavor in these tuna less sandwiches. This is recipe can be made in ten minutes and is perfect for your weekly lunches. Just make the tuna salad, through it on some bread, and pack it in your lunch box. "

NotesTo lighten the recipe, use light mayo or a combo of ½ mayo ½ plain yogurt.

Vegan? Use a vegan mayo and vegan-friendly English muffin.

You can make mixture ahead of time and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator until you’re ready to use. (I suggest no more than 2-3 days in the refrigerator.)

Want it more smooth or more chunky? Mash the chickpeas more or less depending on the texture you like.
