For this Apple Pecan Chickpea Salad Sandwich I made a tahini dressing. The savory flavors of the tahini pair nicely with the candy flavors of the apple.

To feature even more sweetness, I brought dried cranberries. I used pecans for a few crunch, however you can use walnuts or roasted cashews in case you need.
