Vegetarian Sandwich Recipe: Chickpea Salad

Updated on March 17, 2012

When I first became a vegetarian, sandwiches always seemed challenging. This hearty chickpea salad will satisfy even a non-vegetarian appetite. The recipe is super quick to whip up and is also goes nicely served on top of a bed of greens to dress up a salad for a lower carbohydrate lunch option.
