Oil Free Edamame Quinoa Salad

This Oil Free Edamame Quinoa Salad is light, refreshing, and all raw. No need to cook the corn and edamame beans. Thaw slightly (or not) and just add them to the salad as is.

Store it in a plastic container and use when you just want something simple and easy.   Once mixed, all you have to do is take your container out, pour into bowl, add plant based milk,...

My Health History
