Vegan tuna salad that actually tastes like the stuff you grew up eating! Chickpeas and heart of palm give it the perfect texture, but the real magic is in the dulse flakes that infuse it with the perfect savory seafood flavor.

  • 1 (14 ounce or 400 gram) can heart of palm, drained
  • 1 cup cooked or canned chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • ¼ cup vegan mayo (I used Just Mayo)
  • ¼ cup finely chopped red onion
  • 1 celery stalk, diced
  • 2 tablespoons pickle relish
  • 1 tablespoon whole grain Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon dulse flakes (or more, to taste)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Chop the hearts of palm into ½-inch pieces and place them into a small mixing bowl. Use a fork to shred the pieces (shred them finely, or keep them chunky - your call).

  2. Add the chickpeas to the bowl and lightly mash them with a fork or potato masher.

  3. Stir in the mayo, red onion, celery, relish, mustard, vinegar, and dulse flakes. 

  4. Taste-test and season with salt and pepper to taste. Adjust any other seasonings to your liking.

  5. Serve.
