Curried Chickpea Salad Sandwiches



Author Notes: This is a great meatless alternative to traditional curried chicken salad. I adapted this recipe from thesimpleveganista.blogspot.com and added several ingredients to help enhance the curry flavor. It surprisingly tastes very similar to curried chicken salad, but better!
