Best Edamame Summer Salad Recipe

This is my favorite salad of ALL TIME. The edamame is the star of the show. Filled with healthy veggies and a light sauce, this stuff goes FAST at gatherings, so make a double batch if you want to keep your friends.

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.

I hope you all enjoy this one as much as I do!
