Vegan Tuna Salad

As a still struggling former pescetarian, I'll admit to missing my tuna salad. Not only is it tasty, but it's a super easy lunch to throw together in a short amount of time. So imaging my excitement when I found that a similarly simple dish can be made with the substitution of chickpeas and Vegenaise!

Loosely based on this recipe, my version included giardiniera [an addiction I picked up from the omnivore boyfriend...we like things spicy].

The most amazing discovery during this recipe: CANNED CHICKPEAS SMELL LIKE TUNA! Swear. Open a jar right now, you'll see what I'm talking about.
