Crunchy Edamame-Corn Salad

.

This colorful salad keeps well and makes a great lunch on-the-go. It has a healthy grain, veggies and the edamame for protein. This is a variation of Green Soy Salad in Depression the Way Out by Dr. Neil Nedley.

It is my first preference to use the very tender sweet white corn, but as you can see from the pictures it can also be made with the sweet yellow. We only use organic corn because of the heavily sprayed crops and sometimes the yellow is all I can find.

This is a large recipe that makes about 8 cups, but it can easily be cut in half if there are only two of you, and because it keeps well, you can eat on it more than one day.

It makes a great meal with a yummy baked sweet potato topped with tahini (or your favorite dressing) and some steamed broccoli on the side. — You’ll have to give it a try!
