Buffalo Chickpea Salad (vegetarian + vegan option)


Helloooo and happy Friday filled with Buffalo Chickpea Salad!


I made this Buffalo Chickpea Salad because I love buffalo sauce. I dip my fries in it. I put it on sandwiches, eggs, pizza. I’m buffalo sauce’s number one fan. I wanted a delicious vegetarian recipe for something I could use in sandwiches. Something with substance. Something with buffalo sauce.

Prep time
Total time
This simple recipe is made with every day pantry items including mayo, chickpeas and buffalo sauce. Great for sandwiches, wraps and phyllo cups. Can be served with chips or crackers, too.
Recipe type: appetizer
Serves: 4
  • 2 C cooked chickpeas (I used canned - rinsed)
  • ¼ C diced celery
  • ¼ C mayonnaise (veganaise for vegan version)
  • 2 tbsp buffalo wing sauce, plus more for garnish (use vegan for vegan version)
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • Chopped fresh cilantro for garnish
  1. Prepare the chickpeas. Place ⅓ of the chickpeas in a mixing bowl and mash them. Add the remaining chickpeas to the mixing bowl and stir to combine with the mashed chickpeas.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients (minus the cilantro) to the mixing bowl and mix well.
  3. Pour the mixture into a serving bowl and garnish with fresh chopped cilantro and drizzle with extra buffalo sauce, if desired.
