Thanks to ADM for sponsoring this recipe.

I don’t know about you, but right about now, I am totally craving something super easy, fuss-free, and made with fresh ingredients, and this Easy Edamame Salad is hitting the spot! Not only is this protein-packed salad inexpensive and easy to throw together, but the edamame (a.k.a. soy beans) is also a complete protein providing all of our essential amino acids. In fact, soybeans are rich in fiber, folate, potassium, vitamin K and rich in essential fatty acids and low in saturated and trans-fat.

So, economical? Check. Nutritious? Check. Delicious? Check. Need more inspiration? Watch this mouth-watering video:
