Creativity has no boundaries, nor is it confined to a particular frame of action/ mind/ thing. Why am I talking about it here? hee hee hee this is my creative endeavour in adding a few extra elements to this wonderful salad that I happened to taste at an equally wonderful restaurant over a happy reunion of my college friends :)

Yes!! You might wonder! chickpeas with peas? heh has she gone berserk to try incredulous combinations? :P hmph.. after all cooking is all about experiments and these stand testimony to the empirical results  of my culinary journey :) physics apart.. but this salad was one of the most yummiest salad I've had till date! minus the greens this makes for a filling meal all by itself.. be it for your lazy lunch or a deferred dinner.. you can toss this in less than 10 minutes provided you've all the ingredients at your disposal.
