Marinated Edamame Salad

The word edamame means, "beans on branches." The edamame bean is actually a green soybean that is harvested early while the beans are still immature. It is high in protein, fiber, vitamin C, calcium, and iron. Even after boiling, they retain a crisp-tenderness and are quite delicious.
Marinated Edamame Salad

3 cups chicken broth
1 pkg frozen edamame beans, shelled
1 lb frozen corn
3 fresh, ripe tomatoes, chopped
1/3 - 1/2 cup chopped, fresh basil
1/2 cup oil
1/2 tsp sesame oil
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp hoisin sauce
salt & pepper to taste
dash crushed red pepper flakes

Bring chicken broth to a boil and add edamame and corn. Boil on medium-high for about 10-15 minutes. Drain. Combine with remaining ingredients and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.

Just tried edamame recently and loved it! I had no idea how something that tastes so good could be good for you! :)
Your salad has me wanting to make a run to the store for some right now! Yum-O!

It was only a few months ago that I tried it for the first time, too. I hope you like the recipe.

I had an Aunt Edamame who sometimes got "marinated" on Saturday nights. She didn't get up for Sunday school but always made it for preachin. This looks way better than she did though.

Wish I could have met Aunt Edamame.
