Introducing this Chickpea Mayo Salad, one of my favourite recipes of this year!

It’s incredibly easy to make, ready in less than 5 minutes, summery and the uses for this vegan mayo salad are endless. 

I show you below 3 of my favourite ways to use this egg-free chickpea mayo but it’s also the perfect side dish to serve up at a BBQ.

Since being dairy and egg-free and also reducing my fish consumption I have totally missed tuna mayo salad. As a kid it used to be one of my favourite things to have in sandwiches. This looks and tastes really similar to me so if you’re the same then you HAVE to give this a try!

You’re going to absolutely love this Chickpea Mayo Salad as it’s:
  • Easy
  • Ready in 5 mins
  • Versatile
  • One-Bowl
  • Delicious
  • Gluten free & Vegan

Using these simple ingredients it’s the best vegan chickpea mayo salad you’ll make!


Most importantly you can make this vegan chickpea mayo salad in under 5 minutes with just one-bowl making it the perfect quick lunch, dinner or side dish.

There are so many great vegan mayonnaise options out there now. I was really impressed by the taste and had to double check the jar to make sure I hadn’t bought the wrong one!


Firstly just add the chickpeas and quickly mash them, then add the other ingredients and mix. That’s it!!!

It totally looks like tuna mayonnaise salad and tastes similar to what I used to eat as a kid. It’s perfect for those reducing their fish consumption or those that are vegan/plant-based.
