Crunchy Edamame Salad

Crunchy Edamame Salad

A week of vacation and these warm temps has my body craving all things green, light, and crisp. This salad delivers on texture and flavor and is the perfect hydrating combo to help combat all those cocktails I had last week. No regrets.


Go ahead and file this one under "weeknight dinner rotation." It's super simple, incredibly tasty and can be modified for any type of eater you have living in your household!
