Chickpea Tuna Salad

If you are looking for a healthy and quick lunch idea, look no further. This chickpea tuna salad is so easy to make and is a perfect dish when you are craving something healthy and filling. The chickpeas and tuna are a great source of protein, so it will keep you full longer. Feel free to add any vegetables you like, this salad tastes great with avocado and onions as well. If making a large batch to have for a few days, I would suggest adding the fresh spinach right before you eat, so that it does not get too soft.

  • 1 14-oz can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 2 cans tuna fish, packed in water

  • 2 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp sugar

Directions:

  • Add the chickpeas, tomatoes, cucumber, and drained tuna into a large bowl
  • Add the spinach and feta
  • To make the dressing: In a small bowl, stir together the lemon juice, avocado oil,  dijon mustard, sugar, salt and pepper until well combined and smooth
