This is the salad that everyone swoons over at parties. People request this recipe from me more than any other. I make it a lot. It is always a huge hit and I have a feeling it always will be. It's like an immortal recipe of sorts. It doesn't age. No wrinkles or anything.

This salad tastes best when made the day before! Let it marinate in the fridge overnight for extra flavor a compliments from guests.
Serve this as a side dish for any meal or as a party food!
If you happen to have bell peppers or red onions hanging out in your kitchen, feel free to add them to the mix!
Table salt, sea salt and kosher salt all taste great in this recipe. Use your favorite!
Replace the olive oil with coconut or sesame oil for a different flavor.
I have always loved Edamame Salad just the way it is, but feel free to experiment! Add sesame seeds for an extra crunch or cayenne pepper for a bit of spice.
Sprinkle salt and pepper over the top of the entire salad just before serving for extra flavor.
