Instructions
  1. Add drained chickpeas to a large bowl. Mash half with a fork or potato masher.
  2. Add drained cannellini beans and continue mashing, until about 75% of the bean mixture is mashed. You'll want to leave some chickpeas and cannellini beans whole for texture.
  3. Add celery, grapes, almonds and green onions.
  4. In a separate small bowl, whisk together mayo, mustard, vinegar and maple syrup. Add to the chickpea mixture.
  5. Stir the chickpea salad with a large spoon until well combined. Add salt and pepper to taste, and mix again.
  6. Serve cold, spread between two slices of your favorite bread. If desired, add toppings like lettuce, sliced cucumber or alfalfa sprouts. Enjoy!
