5 Days of Grain Salads: Day 3

I'm not sure if you can tell, but edamame is one of my favorite components of a grain salad. It adds a punch of green, as well as tastes great. Sometimes I like to buy the unshelled soybeans and eat them as a snack. It's a perfect healthy snack (if you're not interested in something healthy, why not try these chocolate donuts?!) and tastes delish.

This salad is mainly comprised of two components: edamame and scarlet quinoa. I used to call scarlet quinoa red quinoa, but once I saw it called scarlet quinoa at a restaurant I just couldn't go back. Doesn't scarlet quinoa just sound so classy? It's like, "what are you eating?" "Why, I'm eating a scarlet quinoa salad". Classy? Yes!

  1. I have a current obsession with fresh cilantro. I'm sure it's really good combined with these other flavors!
