Curry Chickpea Salad

I love a good creamy, curry chicken salad sandwich. My mouth is water a little just thinking about it.

While I do enjoy chicken salad, I also love to try out new recipe ingredients, like chickpeas! This recipe is great for anyone who is vegetarian, just isn’t a fan of chicken or is looking to add more plants to their meals!

Let me tell you, this recipe is full of plants! In addition to this, it’s also full of flavour and texture thanks to curry powder, lemon juice, raisins, various veggies, and chickpeas. You’re going to love it.
