Curried Chickpea Salad

This is a cousin of the ever popular Chickpea Sunflower “Tuna” Salad. It’s excellent in a lettuce wrap, as a dip for sliced veggies cucumbers or peppers, or wonderful atop flourless crackers or Ezekiel bread if you’re on maintenance. Honestly I just ate it straight out of the bowl.
