**Nutrition information is for the smashed chickpea salad with HALF of the tahini mayonnaise.
1. The amount of tahini mayonnaise used in the salad will depend on personal preference. Start with 3 tablespoons and taste the mixture. If a creamier texture is desired, add more tahini mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon at a time, until desired consistency is reached. I personally used 4 tablespoons.
2. The tahini mayonnaise will keep, stored in an airtight container, in the refrigerator for 5 days.
3. The smashed chickpea salad will keep, stored in an airtight container, in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
