Don’t want bread for your sandwich? Make your ‘wich any which way! Ditch the bread and wrap the fixings in a big lettuce, collard or kale leaf, or pile it on a bed of greens for a refreshing, lighter lunch! (Just be sure to add some extra greens to your cart when you’re shopping!)
Canned chickpeas make a delicious base for this “chuna” salad. Packed with flavor and protein, surrounded by veggies, and served on whole grain bread or Ikarian-Style Sourdough, this alternative to the tuna sandwich is one of our favorites.
