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

How to Make Vegetarian "tuna" salad

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