Chickpea 'Tuno' Salad (GF) Wrap

There are a lot of versions of this going around, one of my favourites involved potato chips (crisps, not fries) and another favourite involved avocado.  This is the version I came up with!

Mash some chickpeas with the back of a fork until chunky and stiff, mix with lemon juice, extra virgin olive oil, finely diced onion and celery, finely sliced/chopped nori (that 'seaweed' that is actually algae that you wrap sushi in -- skip if you can't find any or don't want your salad to taste of the sea*), finely chopped black olives and/or capers (skip if you are going low-salt), and a little salt & pepper. Spread on a tortilla wrap (Gluten-free?  No prob, use a corn tortilla wrap!) add some lettuce, maybe some tomatoes, roll up, and eat.   It's also great in a pitta or on bread or just on its own.

Healthy, low-fat, and delicious!

*  And by 'of the sea,' I mean 'fishy.'  Kind of.  You know, in a good way.
