Chick Pea Sandwich Filling

Chick Pea Sandwich Filling

This is a chick pea salad that is great in sandwiches, but also great scooped on lettuce leaves. It has a tangy flavor that pairs well with thinly sliced bell pepper.

Makes about 3 cups of filling.


  • 1-15 oz can chick peas, rinsed & drained
  • 1/4 c onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 c celery, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp kosher dill pickle, minced
  • 2 Tbsp mayonnaise
  • 2 Tbsp sweet pickle relish
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp dried dill weed
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper


  1. Crush chick peas in a food chopper or in a bowl, using a potato masher or fork, until fairly well ground.
  2. Place chick peas and all remaining ingredients in a bowl and stir, mashing any remaining chunks of the peas, until the mixture looks like tuna salad.
  3. Chill until served. Use in sandwiches, on crackers, or on a salad plate.

Note: If packing sandwiches with this filling in a lunch box, be sure to add a freezer pack, as the mayonnaise must be kept chilled. These do make a great lunchbox treat!
