Recipe by

Sometimes regular salads get reeeeeeeally boring, so having leftover steamed edamame from a local Chinese restaurant inspired me to make a different kind of salad. Just a few simple ingredients, and this became a wonderful option to the run-of-the-mill leafy types of salad. This recipe makes either a great side dish for grilled chicken, or a tasty main dish for a light lunch.
