It’s getting to be summer soon, right? It is in LA, at least—word on the street is that the high’s going to be up 101°F Wednesday. That calls for a pool party!

It also calls some summer chickpea salad—a nice, healthy, tasty vegan stand-in for chicken salad. You can find our recipe for it here. These days, we tend to eat it on its own, sans bread, and usually skip the nori mentioned in the previous recipe, though, if you’re looking for something more tuna-salad-like, you might want to keep it in.

Either way, it’s a go-to for this coming warmer weather. So go to it!
