Ten-minute Tuna and Chickpea Salad with bright lemon tahini dressing, veggies, and herbs. A quick and easy lunch, no cooking required!


Units Scale

For the salad:

  • 1-15oz can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can tuna (5 and 7oz both work), drained
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/3 cup diced onion

For the dressing:

  • 3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp dried dill
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp fine sea salt + lots of freshly ground black pepper


  1. Place chickpeas, tuna, pepper and onion in a medium mixing bowl.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together dressing ingredients. Pour on top of salad and toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste. I like to garnish with chopped parsley!
