Alcoeur Apron's Chickpea Tuna Salad

High-protein chickpeas are a good source of magnesium and potassium, which may reduce blood pressure.


  • 1 (15-ounce) can low-sodium chickpeas, rinsed and drained

  • 1 (5-ounce) can tuna, drained and flaked

  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil mayonnaise (regular mayo works just fine but is higher in cholesterol)

  • 1 cup halved cherry tomatoes

  • ½ cup green or black olives (optional)

  • Spinach or torn salad greens


  1. Add the chickpeas, tuna, mustard, mayonnaise, and cherry tomatoes to a bowl and stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper to your liking. Add olives, if using.

  2. Lay a bed of spinach or greens on a plate and top with salad mixture for an easy dinner. Alternatively, eat the salad between 2 slices of whole-grain bread like a tuna salad sandwich.
