How to make chickpea salad?

Put the chickpeas in a bowl and mash them with a fork so that no large chunks of chickpeas remain. Don’t use a blender or food processor to crush chickpeas, otherwise you may end up with a chickpea puree that is not suitable for a salad. Finely chop the onion and celery and add them to the chickpea mixture. Then season the mixture with lemon juice, tahini, a pinch of sea salt, mustard powder and fresh dill. Mix everything together and enjoy immediately or place in the fridge for a while to season.
