An easy and savory summer salad

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!
