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.
