I have been doing a lot of cooking with pantry staples lately – and this was one recipe I came up with that was delicious, healthy, and made such a great lunch.  I love classic chickpea salad (see my recipe here!) but wanted to give this one a briny twist by adding 2 different types of olives. I used Greek kalamata olives and also green olives with pimento (for a little extra color in the peppers).   This vegan chickpea olive salad sandwich made a fantastic lunch, I’d recommend this one for sure!

  • Creamy
  • Hearty
