Edamame and Bean Salad with Shrimp and Fresh Salsa

Today's post is for Sharon, one of my favorite gym instructors. :)  She told me in class this week that she bought edamame and didn't know what to make with it.  Well this recipe is a delicious light lunch with enough fiber to keep you full all afternoon. The other good thing about this recipe is that it makes 2 servings so you don't have to eat it all week.  But it is easily doubled so if you want to make more, it's not a problem. 


I didn't make any changes to this recipe.  As of today's post, 9 people rated this on average a 5 out of 5!


I hope you enjoy this in your home as much as I do!

    oh this sounds like a great lunch! I love buying the frozen edemame, so it's nice to have an easy receipt to make something different. I this salad spicy from the jalapenos?
