Curried Chickpea Salad Recipe

Growing up, my mom would make the BEST curried chicken salad. It was made with savory spices and loaded with veggies. The perfect filling lunch for a hot summer day. Now that I'm plant-based, I've given my mom's recipe a healthy spin to create a delicious dairy-free version. This curried chickpea salad recipe has all the great flavors I grew up with, minus the cholesterol.
