I LOVE these Chickpea Salad Lettuce Wraps! Chickpea salad is a vegan take on the classic chicken salad flavors. You get the creaminess from the vegan mayo & avocado, a little spice & crunch from the jalapeño, and the perfect amount of tang from the mustard. Served up in butter lettuce cups, this is a great lunch or easy dinner!

Step One: Grab the Ingredients

I have made a few different versions of chickpea salad in the past – you can see those recipes here, here & here. And while all of the different variations are delicious, this specific combo is one I come back to again & again!

Step Two: Add it all to a Bowl

The best part about this recipe is how quick it comes together! You will spend more time waiting for it to chill than actually making this!

Add the drained chickpeas to a large bowl and mash with a fork (or potato masher) – you can leave as many or as few of the chickpeas intact that you like.

Add the avocado and mash until smooth. Add the remaining ingredients (through the hot sauce) and mix to combine. Taste and adjust the seasonings as needed. Cover and place in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Step Three: Assemble & Serve

When the chickpea salad is chilled, rinse off some butter lettuce leaves and scoop some salad into each leaf. I like to top each one off with some everything seasoning and pickled onions.

These are seriously so great. They have great crunch, simple ingredients and are delicious.
