Rainbow Vegetable Bean Salad

This is a really healthy salad that is very colorful. It's high in protein and fiber. Any vegetables that you have can be substituted as long as they are colorful! Edamame is such a great bean because of the variety of things you can make with it. It's not just for a pre-sushi feast. Stay tuned for more recipes using edamame. For now enjoy!
