For the chickpea mayonnaise salad*:

  • 400 g (14oz) tin of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 200 g (3.5oz) tinned sweetcorn, drained and rinsed
  • Small bunch of chives, finely chopped

For the mayonnaise:

To serve:

  • Pitta bread, flatbread, sandwich bread, lettuce wraps, chicory boats
  • Lettuce, cherry tomatoes etc


  • Place chickpeas in a bowl and mash with a fork or potato masher until broken into rough pieces (you can alternatively use a pestle and mortar)
  • Once mashed, add the sweetcorn and chives

For the mayonnaise:

  • Add all ingredients for the mayonnaise to a blender or food processor (a hand-held stick blender also works well) and whizz until completely smooth, adding little splashes of water until you achieve your desired consistency - it should be fairly runny but not too watery
  • Taste and adjust seasonings as necessary
  • Add the mayonnaise to the chickpeas etc and mix well. Taste and add more salt if necessary

To serve:

  • Serve in pitta bread, flatbread, sandwich bread, lettuce wraps or chicory boats, along with salad such as lettuce and cherry tomatoes if desired
  • Keeps well for several hours (best to keep refrigerated). The chickpea mayonnaise salad itself will keep for up to a couple of days covered in the fridge
