This Curried Chickpea Salad Sandwich with Yogurt is a healthy and easy-to-make lunch! It's made with wholesome ingredients and filled with fiber.
If you are looking to spice up your life during lunchtime, I highly recommend giving this sandwich recipe a try! Chickpea salad sandwiches are very popular, but can be kind of boring. I love the addition of the curry in this recipe because it really amps up the flavor.
Chickpea salad sandwiches are a great substitute for tuna salad. I have nothing against tuna salad, but it's nice to switch it up sometimes. Rather than using mayo to make this salad super creamy, I use Greek yogurt to increase the protein. Also, another special addition to this salad is chopped dates. The sweetness of the dates works so well with the curry flavor and I love the chewy texture.
