  • 2 (15 ounce) cans cooked chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 3/4 cup chopped celery
  • 3/4 cup halved red grapes
  • 1/2 cup toasted walnut pieces
  • 1 cup mayonnaise (regular or vegan) or Greek Yogurt, or a combination of the two
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. First, use a potato masher or fork to mash your chickpeas. It’s okay if some still hold their shape, but you want to mash them a decent amount.
  2. Next, add the rest of the ingredients to the same bowl as the chickpeas.
  3. Stir the ingredients until well combined.
  4. Serve on bread, a croissant, or on a bed of lettuce for a lower carb option.
