Edamame Salad

Remember Quinoa from my "Go To Staples" Here is a great way to use it with Edamame! 
For the salad:
1 cup quinoa, cooked (Optional...You can use a broth as your liquid and add your own favorite spices for extra flavor)
1 cup frozen corn (place in a strainer, run cold water over it to thaw)
1 cup frozen edamame (place in a strainer also, run cold water over it to thaw)
1 small red onion, sliced (Place in ice water for a few minutes to take bite out of onion)
1 red bell pepper, diced
1/2 cup thinly sliced celery hearts
4 or 5 radishes, sliced
2 ounces feta, crumbled (about 1/2 cup, optional but oh so good if added)
1-2 jalapeño, minced
1/2-1 cup chopped cilantro
For the dressing:
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 garlic clove (more to taste, we love garlic), pressed
1/4 cup olive oil
Salt to taste 

Combine all the salad ingredients in a large bowl. Whisk together the dressing ingredients and toss with the salad. Serve and Enjoy! Delicious!
Serves four to six. 

Note: Don't be afraid of the Olive Oil, it is a good, healthy fat which your body needs.
1/4 cup is only 4 T, this recipe serves six. Enjoy.
