Hot weather and cold sandwiches go hand in hand. And these Chickpea Caesar Salad Sandwiches are my new favorite. Toasted bread topped with smashed chickpeas in a dairy free caesar salad. Crunchy, creamy and super delicious!

Step One: Make the Vegan Caesar Dressing

For the vegan caesar dressing you are going to need:

Add everything to a large salad bowl and crush the capers with a fork. This dressing is really made to taste – so be sure to taste as you go and adjust the measurements to your liking.

Step Two: Assemble the Filling

Once the dressing is ready, add a can of drained and rinsed chickpeas. Grab that fork again and mash away. You can leave some of the chickpeas intact if you want.

Add in a head of chopped romaine and some red onion. These will add a nice crunch! Toss, toss, toss until everything is perfectly coated.

To make these sandwiches even easier, you can add all of the dressing ingredients to a food processor and blend until smooth. Add the drained chickpeas and pulse until everything is combined. Transfer to a bowl and add the onion and romaine.

Step Three: Make the Sandwiches

When choosing a bread for these sandwiches, I would go with something hearty. This will keep the bread from getting soggy.

I went with everything ciabatta buns from Trader Joe’s – they are so delicious! But you could also use focaccia or a baguette. Just be sure to toast the bread!

Add a large helping of the caesar salad to each sandwich. Slice in half and serve! These sandwiches are great on-the-go and are the perfect lunch idea.
