A healthful salad with tons of protein per serving! Be sure to rinse the quinoa before cooking. The grain has a bitter coating that must be rinsed off. We buy edamame whole (still in pods) in the frozen section of our grocery. We steam them in the microwave with heavily salted water and then shell the soybeans out for this salad.
