This delicious and nutritious take on a classic lunchtime favorite, chicken salad, contains all the vitamins and minerals required for a super immune system, including selenium, zinc, iron, B vitamins and folic acid, vitamins A, C, D, and E.
In a food processor, pulse the chickpeas, walnuts, and sunflower seeds until finely minced to the consistency of your liking (think chicken salad; some like it chunkier than others). Transfer the mixture into a bowl.
Add the celery, shallot (or onion), apple, tarragon, dill, lemon juice, maple syrup (or honey), salt, and pepper to the chickpea mixture. Incorporate thoroughly with a spoon. Do a taste test, adjust seasonings to your preference.
Put about 3/4 cup of mixture onto a collard green or whole grain wrap, add tomato, dijon mustard, wrap it up, and enjoy! Serve alongside a leafy green salad if you’d like.
