I love this dip and the combination of ingredients works so perfectly! I actually dislike raw celery or dijon mustard by themselves but in this dip they blend in and you can't even taste them! I especially enjoy this is a wonderful wholesome sandwich filling which is perfect to meal prep for future days.🌿🙌🏻 Even more so than the Mashed Chickpea & Dill Sandwich recipe as the flavours in this are slightly more complex (and involve pickles which are a personal fave). 🥰🥪

This salad tastes so fabulous that I could eat all by myself :) I skipped the celery because I didn't have any. Also I used tahini instead of mayo. With these changes it still turned out to be great. Such a filling and delicious recipe I really love it. Thank you so much...

Thanks for sharing your experience with this one, Sevgi! Sounds delicious 😍

Fantastic recipe. The seasonings are perfect. I plan on making a batch to use for sandwiches for work. I would suggest putting the mixture in a small container and making the sandwich itself at work as the mixture is very moist and the bread would be soggy by noon hour. Also, sprinkle the toasted seeds on just before eating. Do not skip any of the ingredients as they make the recipe fantastic.

Are sunflowers necessary to this? Is there something I could sub for them? (I’m allergic).

I love your videos


PUL Team - July 20, 2021, 3:45 p.m.

Hi Karla, feel free to omit the sunflower seeds or substitute them for another seed or nut, such as pine nuts or pumpkin seeds for an added crunch. We hope you enjoy the recipe 🙂
