Chickpea Salad

Sometimes it's hard to come up with vegan sandwich options that are quick and easy,  only have a few ingredients, and aren't all carbs on carbs. Where's the protein? I'm not a big sandwich person. Soup & salad for me please, but lately I've been wanting the bread. Delicious bread. I hope it's because I've started exercising more, but I'm not so sure. That might be more wishful thinking.

This is chickpea salad, a simple take on fake tuna or chicken salad.

One can chickpeas, rinsed
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil (I did half olive oil and half flax seed oil)
2 Tbsp yellow mustard
2 Tbsp sweet relish 
1/2 Tbsp sunflower seeds for a nice crunch
Salt, black pepper, & cayenne to taste 
Toppings: fresh tomato, lettuce, onion 

Mix and mash it all together.
