Quinoa Edamame Salad

This was a really good one, like ‘can’t stop eating it’ good. It’s supposed to be a side dish, but I think it would be reasonable to eat as a main dish.

The best part about it? It’s even better on day 2.

  1. Loving It! Patrick & Ruby made it with Black Quinoa We were unable to convince Grandma to try it. 😦 I like it cold, the second day. I feel so very healthy after eating it.
