A simple vegan recipe for Curry Chickpea Salad, that can be turned into a healthy wrap with spinach and sprouts. A delicious make-ahead vegan lunch recipe!
Here’s a simple healthy lunch idea- Curry Chickpea Salad Wraps! The salad can be made ahead, and it’s vegan and full of delicious flavor. The curry chickpea salad is made with toasted coconut, dates, celery, apple and toasted cashews ( or sub another nut).
Turn the tasty salad into packable wraps for the busy workweek or serve the salad over greens for a Gluten-Free option.
It’s super simple to put together.
Apple and dates give the salad a welcome sweetness.
Toasted coconut and cashews add nutty flavor.
Then just mix it all up!
You can serve it as a salad, over a bed of dressed spinach.
Or scoop it into a wrap or tortilla. Or turn into lettuce cups!
I love adding baby spinach and sprouts.
This would also work well in a toasted pita!
Hope you enjoy these Curry Chickpea Salad Wraps!
