I love salads in the summer! From mixed fruit salads to bowls of loaded greens there is something about a refreshing salad. When it comes to salads, there is so such thing as boring! I am constantly inventing new ways for salads to be a main dish or a complimentary side dish for a BBQ.
One of my recent favorites is Edamame salad. It is a super easy salad to make with really just a few ingredients and spices. Plus it can be served warm or cold. This is a great dish to go along with grilled chicken or steak or a colorful dish to make quickly for a neighbors BBQ.
The ingredients are simple:
1 bag frozen organicshelled edamame (16 oz)
1 handful of sweetened dried organic cranberries
4 oz of feta cheese
a few tablespoons of olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
Start by tossing your frozen edamame with olive oil, salt and pepper. Preheat oven to 350. Place edamame on a ceramic baking sheet or a parchment paper covered baking sheet. Roast for 10 minutes. While the edamame is roasting crumble your feta in a bowl with your cranberries. When the edamame is done toss it in the bowl with a splash of olive oil and mix it gently with the feta, cranberry mixture. Serve warm or chill and enjoy!
