One of my favorite sandwiches is curried chicken salad but lately I have trying to been incorporating more meatless meals so I have been making it with chickpeas instead. It is delicious and I barely miss the chicken. The key is slightly mashing the chickpeas using the back of your fork so that they are still chunky but start to stick together. This makes the whole salad come together and ensures the curry powder is present in every bite. Depending on your preferences, you may want to use more or less curry powder. You can also use apples or pears instead of the grapes.
