Chickpea (Garbanzo Bean) Salad Sandwiches

Everyone has their own "special" way of making Chickpea Salad Sandwiches, so of course I think my way is the best. I never measure anything, I just do all my favorite ingredients to taste. So here's the deal: I will list the must-haves to make this sandwich awesome and you can adjust it to your liking. So here we go!

-Mashed chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
-Vegan mayo (Vegenaise)
-Yellow mustard
-Sweet pickle relish
-Celery, finely diced
-Red onion, finely diced
-Green onion, thinly sliced
-Carrot, finely diced
-Fresh cracked pepper
-Celery salt
-Optional: kelp seasoning for "tuna" flavored salad or curry powder for a Middle Eastern style salad

-I find it easiest to mash the chickpeas with a bean masher at first then get all the chickpeas you missed by mushing them up with a fork.
-Mix all ingredients together and you got yourself an amazing sandwich... My boyfriend eats these right when he gets home from work (sadly at Mc Donald's) everyday, their his favorite, especially the version with curry powder.

Preparation time: About 15 minutes
