For the Chickpea Salad

  • 2 cans Heinen’s organic chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 organic celery rib, finely chopped
  • 2 green onions, minced
  • ⅓ cup vegan mayo
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 2 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper

For the Pitas

  • ½ organic English cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • Great Lakes Growers Icicle lettuce
  • 2 cups Heinen’s organic baby spinach
  • Vigeo Gardens microgreens blend


  1. In a food processor, pulse the chickpeas 10-20 times or until finely chopped, but not pureed (you want texture).
  2. Transfer the chickpeas to a medium-size bowl and fold in the remaining chickpea salad ingredients. Taste for seasoning and add additional lemon juice, if desired. Salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Spoon the chickpea salad into each pita half, spreading with the back of a spoon in an even layer. Top with the sliced cucumbers, avocado, Icicle lettuce, baby spinach and microgreens.
