Edamame Quinoa Salad

I was on the lookout for a hearty salad to serve as a side with salmon that I was preparing for Mr. Right and me.  When I saw this colorful, easy, nourishing, and filling edamame quinoa salad recipe in a magazine (I think Better Homes and Gardens?), I knew it was the one.  You will like this one, folks.

1/2 cup quinoa, rinsed and drained

1 cup water

1 cup frozen shelled edamame, thawed

1 cup fresh or frozen whole kernel corn, thawed if frozen

1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved

1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

1/4 cup lime juice

2 tablespoons olive oil

Salt and ground black pepper


1.  In a small saucepan, combine quinoa and water.  Bring to boiling; reduce heat.  Cover; simmer 15 minutes or until water is absorbed.  Remove from heat; set aside.

2.  Meanwhile, in a large bowl combine edamame, corn, tomatoes, and cilantro.  Add quinoa; toss to combine.  Add lime juice and olive oil; toss to coat.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.

If you don’t want to use salmon, this salad would taste great with this chicken recipe.
