Although not the most creative solution, any time I am trying to make a vegetarian version of a favorite salad or burger, I almost always reach for chickpeas first.  This is partly due to the fact that they rank up there as my favorite legume but also has a lot to do with the fact that they hold up really well and adapt to almost any flavor combination I throw at them.  This recipe is a vegetarian spin on blackened chicken salad and works well in sandwices, wraps, and salads.  One of my favorite ways to eat it is on a bed of greens with some sliced avocado.  The spicy salad and creamy avocado are delicious together.  This will keep for a few days in the fridge so plan on leftovers.
