My new love is edamame. I don’t know why it took me so long to become infatuated with lovely little legume. I am in love. This is a fantastically quick and tasty side dish to go with just about anything. I paired it with some fajitas but I can’t imagine it would clash with much.

Black Bean, Corn, and Edamame Salad with Cilantro and Lime Dressing 

  • 3 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small garlic clove, finely minced
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 2 cobs of grilled corn, cut off the cob when cooled
  • 1 cup edamame, steamed and shelled
  • 1 15-ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup red onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped

In a small bowl, combine the lime juice, oils, garlic, and agave or sugar. Whisk together and set aside. Add the corn, edamame, black beans, onion, and cilantro to a medium/large bowl. Pour dressing over the mixture and gently toss. Refrigerate for at least one hour, up to overnight, to allow flavors to blend.
