Tips for making Zesty Smashed Chickpea Salad:

  • I like to use my homemade pickles in this recipe, but any pickles of your choice will work.

  • Out of lemon juice? Apple cider vinegar will work well in a pinch.

  • You can replace the chopped cilantro with fresh parsley for comparable results.

  • I think brown mustard greatly enriches the other flavors in this dish, but any mustard that you like will serve as a good substitute here.

  • On a nut-free diet? Replace the walnuts with pumpkin or sunflower seeds for similar results.

  • On a sugar-free diet? This sugar-free sweetener is my favorite maple syrup substitute!

  • This chickpea salad stores well in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to one week.
