Chick Pea and Edamame Salad.....

Simple, quick, healthy and delicious.  Everything I want in a salad.  Here's the recipe, enjoy!    
1 (15oz.) can of chick peas, drained and rinsed
12 oz. edamame, no need to defrost, they'll defrost while the salad rests in the fridge
1 red pepper, diced small
1/3 cup golden raisins
1/2 cup dried cranberries
2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
3 to 4 tbsp. good quality balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper to taste

Note* I only use GMO free ( genetically modified organisms) edamame from Traders Joe's.

Mix everything in a bowl and let it sit for a few hours in the fridge so that the vinegar and oil can flavor the salad.   I like to eat this salad with a piece of whole grain pita.

  4. OH yum!! I would love to eat that. Reading the recipe I was thinking eating with pita would be so yummy.
    I need to fix this and put it in my fridge for a snack.
    You know, you could come over and hang out and we could have this and sit and talk awhile. :)
