A few weeks ago I went to the Winery I am a member of for their quarterly pick up party. After seeing the plates of food being served I did not have high hopes of how it would taste. The chicken, sauce and grits looked questionable at best but on the side there was a fresh salad of edamame, corn, red onion and okra that I could not stop eating! It was so simple but really delicious and I haven't been able to get that combo off my mind. Perfect on it's own as a side, added to a pasta or green salad this dish has loads of potential!
I think it earns bonus points for being gluten free, vegetarian and only 6 ingredients!
Corn and Edamame Salad
1 ½ cups edamame
1 ½ cups fire roasted corn and peppers
2 Tablespoons minced shallot
2 Tablespoons olive oil
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
Combine all ingredients together in a medium mixing bowl and stir until well mixed. This salad is equally delicious served at room temperature or made ahead and chilled.
