Edamame Succotash

My favourite bean salad is the Edamame Succotash from Whole Foods. It is a flavourful blend of edamame beans, mushrooms, and dried berries in a sweet and spicy Thai vinaigrette that makes for a satisfying main or side dish. In my own take on this recipe, I’ve also added chickpeas to load up on the protein, fibre and iron. The perks of bean salad? It can be quickly made in bulk ahead of time and stores well for lunches and dinner parties.
