Deli Style 'Tuna' Salad Sandwich with Cashew Mayo

1 cup cashews, soaked in water overnight then drained

1 garlic clove

2 tsp apple cider vinegar

½ cup + 2 Tbsp water

1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained

1 Tbsp capers, drained

1 stalk celery, diced

Salt (optional)

Freshly ground black pepper to taste

6 slices whole grain vegan bread

1 Blend cashews, garlic, vinegar, sea salt, water in high speed blender until smooth and creamy.

2 Makes approximately ¾ cup mayo, more than needed for this recipe, but you’ll want to keep extra on hand for your favorite sandwiches.

3 Mix chickpeas, ⅓ cup of the cashew mayo, and capers in a food processor until creamy, resembling tuna fish.

4 In a mixing bowl, combine chickpea mixture with celery, salt, and pepper, and stir by hand until completely combined.

5 Spread mixture onto three slices of bread. Top with the remaining slices.
