Chickpea Tuna Salad

This is a nice little mock-tuna salad that's just perfect in a sandwich, or topping a bowl of green salad. Mom always used to put apples in her tuna salad, and it's stuck with me over the years. The sweet next to the salty is a good balance. See what you think.

Chickpea Tuna Salad
makes about 2 cups

1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 small apple, chopped
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 - 1/2 cup vegan mayo
1 T nutritional yeast
1 - 1 1/2 tsp Old Bay seasoning
1/4 tsp onion powder
salt and pepper to taste

Mash the chickpeas in a large, flat-bottomed bowl.
Mix in the apple, celery, and walnuts.
Stir in 1/4 cup of mayo, and add more by spoonfuls if needed.
Add the seasonings and stir well. Add the salt last if needed. There's salt in the Old Bay, and it's easy to get too salty, even for a "seafood" dish.
