This edamame salad was bursting with flavor and it was gorgeous!!!

The Labor Day Weekend is in full force and that means picnics and parties for many of us!!  I am always looking for sneaky ways to show people what clean food tastes like!!!

One of my challengers forwarded me this recipe and I just couldn’t wait to try it!  I had plenty of fresh tomatoes and basil from my garden so I didn’t even have to buy them at the grocery store!!!



3 tbsp olive oil

2 tbsp red wine vinegar, or to taste

1 tbsp water

1 clove of garlic, minced

3/4 tsp table salt

1/4 tsp black pepper

1 pound edamame (shelled) cooked

10 medium plum tomatoes seeded and chopped

1/2 cup basil, fresh, cut into ribbons

1 small uncooked red onion finely sliced

1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese


To make dressing, in a small bowl, combine oil, vinegar, water, garlic, salt and pepper, set aside.

In a large serving bowl, combine edamame, tomatoes, basil and onion; toss with dressing and sprinkle with cheese.

Yields about 1 cup per serving.
