MOCK TUNA SALAD
I have a new favorite sandwich filling to make as an alternative to tuna salad or egg salad --
Drain a can of garbanzo beans / chick peas. Mash them with a fork or potato masher to keep some of the texture -- although if I were in a hurry, I'd chop them in a food processor. Mix in some mayonnaise.
You could add in other finely chopped veggies to taste. Of course, you could start from scratch with dry beans. You could even make it totally vegan by using a creamy dressing other than real mayonnaise.
I haven't tried Miracle Whip yet but I will because here in Iowa, both tuna salad and egg salad are made with Miracle Whip, not mayo. That's just the way we roll!
So far, though, I've only had the straight chick peas (from a can) & mayo with a slice of Swiss cheese, in a thin wheat bun and heated like a tuna melt, or in a tortilla and toasted like a quesadilla. Simple and yummy.
