Basic Vegan Tuna Salad

3 May

What’s up guys? I just had a yummy dinner while sitting outside in the lovely sunshine. Finally being able to comfortably sit in the fresh air made my meal so much better. I have been making this tuna salad recipe for a few years now. It is great over a fresh garden salad, on a bagel, or as yummy sandwich. I chose to make tuna subs tonight. This is a great base recipe, and can be modified to suit your fancy.


Basic Vegan Tuna Salad


  • 2 Cans of Chickpeas drained
  • 1 1/4 Cup Vegan Mayo
  • 1/4 Tsp salt
  • 4 Tbs Sweet Relish
  • A dash of pepper

Other Add in ideas

  • Finely chopped onion
  • Vegan grated parmesan
  • Curry or Dill
  • Onion or garlic powder
  • Celery
  • Mustard



  • Dump the strained chickpeas into a food processor. Process the beans until they have been left in a thick and slightly chunky mixture. Be careful not to over process. We aren’t making hummus!


  • Transfer the mashed chickpeas into a medium sized bowl. Add the remainder of the ingredients to the bowl as well. Mix until well combined.

I served my tuna salad mixture on a grinder roll with melted vegan cheese, lettuce, tomato, and onion. It was super yummy.
