Chickpea Tuna Salad
I’ve had this salad on my mind and realized I had all the ingredients on hand to whip this up, and I loved it! This would make a great meal prep lunch, you can double the recipe, the flavors only get better then next day. Lettuce is totally optional, there’s no oil, no mayo, instead I drizzled some of the brine from the capers (the liquid) along with red wine vinegar and loved how it turned out.

When buying canned tuna, I prefer pole caught, wild albacore. American Tuna (affil link) is a brand I like, caught in the USA, certified sustainable, turtle safe, dolphin safe, low mercury, bpa free, etc. It costs a little more than other brands but for me, it’s worth it.
