Vegan Chickpea Salad Recipe Tips:

+ This chickpea salad keeps well in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to three days. If you’re going to eat it as a sandwich, wait to assemble the sandwich until you’re ready to eat to prevent it from getting soggy.

+ If you’re not a fan of dill, you can swap out the pickles for cucumber and the fresh dill for your favorite herbs. Chives, tarragon, and thyme are all delicious, especially if you add a bit of fresh lemon juice in place of the pickle juice.
