CHICKPEAS SALAD

RECIPE FOR BOTH- a LOW FAT VERSION OF THOUSAND ISLAND DRESSING WITHOUT EGGS

Salads are always a super hit at my place. When i soaked channa for making Channa pulao i felt it was little extra and kept a  1/2 cup of soaked chickpeas aside for making salad. Suddenly i thought of making the salad with a dressing and i adopted this Thousand island dressing from Tarla dalal’s cook book. Though we get ready made Thousand island dressing in super markets, most of them contains eggs. So i wanted to try it out at home and it is a low fat version of Salad and diet watchers go ahead to try out the recipe of chickpeas salad with Thousand island dressing.

Sowmya, Daiso has a good collection of ramkeins but i have never tried them on oven. I always found some japanese letters on them which i never understand too:(
Few i bought in Isetan too, and they are oven proof.
