No fish needed. This uses mashed chick peas, and can be made vegan with the substitution of Nayonaise or other eggless mayo.

Method:

No-Cook or Other

Ingredients

1 can(s)
chick peas, drained and rinsed
2-4 Tbsp
mayonnaise or vegan mayonnaise, to taste
1 rib
celery, chopped
chopped onion to taste (i cut off about 1/2" piece and minced it)
1/2
pickle (or more, if you like) chopped

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mash the rinsed chickpeas to coarse consistency. I used a potato masher.
2
Add all the other ingredients and season to taste -- I didn't add anything else, but you could add s/p, garlic, Old Bay, lemon pepper, hot sauce, or anything else you'd put in a tuna salad. Mix well.

Serve on its own, or in a sandwich, or over a bed of lettuce.
