      (if using), mustard, lemon juice, maple syrup (if using), garlic
      powder, dill, salt, and pepper. Mix well to combine.


    1. Taste and adjust the seasonings as needed. Add a bit more
      mayonnaise if the mixture looks too dry. Top chickpea salad onto
      sliced bread. Enjoy immediately or after being chilled.
