I love salads and I love edamame.  I am always looking for something healthy and easy to make.  I was excited when I found this simple recipe from Self Magazine.   Yum!

1 bag (16 0unces) frozen shelled edamame (soy beans)

3 ears of corn, roasted

1/4 cup diced red onions

1/4 cup chopped red pepper

1 1/4 tbsp finely grated ginger root

2 tbsp finely chopped cilantro

1 tbsp light mayonaise

1 tbsp lemon

Drizzle olive oil onto ears of corn, sprinkle with sea salt and freshly ground pepper.  Roast corn at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes.  Turn frequently. 

Toss edamame, peppers, onions, cilantro in bowl.  Whisk lemon and light mayo in a cup, toss into the salad.  Set aside. 

Remove corn from oven, let cool for a few minutes.  Carefully cut corn kernels off the cob.  Toss corn into the bown with the other ingredients.  Chill in the refrigerator.

Edamame Salad can be served cold or room temperature.  Serves 4
