Since the day I started this blog, I have been excited to write a post about this salad. I'm a huge lover of salads, so it holds great meaning when I tell you that this recipe is in my Salad Top 3 list. It is DELICIOUS. It is fresh and healthy and I could eat it every day of my life. I'm not kidding.
It is also super simple to throw together. And it's pretty. I'm sure it would also be a crowd-pleaser, but I wouldn't know this for sure because it never makes it to the crowd when I prepare it.
Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil.
Add a 12-oz. package of frozen shelled edamame to the boiling water and cook for 3 minutes.
Add 2 cups of frozen corn kernels to the saucepan and boil for 1 more minute.
Drain the corn and edamame very well and place in a large bowl, along with:
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/3 cup cilantro, chopped
Juice from 2 limes
1 teaspoon white sugar
1 teaspoon coarse salt
2 cloves of garlic, very finely minced
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
1 bunch green onions, thinly sliced
Mix well and chill before serving. Er, you know, if you have the willpower to do so. I always dig right in and have a hard time stopping, but it really is tastier when it is cold and when the ingredients have had a chance to intermingle.
I hope you all enjoy this one as much as I do!
