Edamame Salad

I have this cookbook; my kids gave to me for Christmas many years ago, probably 12 or more. It has sheet protectors in it that I've inserted recipes for years, and recently I started using 4 x 6 photo protectors and printing recipes on 4 x 6 cards because I can put in 6 recipes per two-sided page .The process of typing and printing will probably take me several years!

I love the computer age, though, because I can print the recipe with a photo on it that shows what the recipe looks like - or should look like anyway.

I have an Edamame Salad recipe in it that I printed out, but I don't remember where it came from, so I can't credit the original creator. I've made several changes to it judging from my hand-written notes on it.

Edamame Salad

1 lb. frozen shelled edamame, cooked according to package directions
3 cups frozen corn
1 cup chopped bell pepper
2-3 cloves minced garlic
3/4 cup sliced green onion
1/4 cup crumbled Feta cheese

Whisk together
1/3 cup lemon juice (try to use fresh, although the stuff in the lemon shaped container works ok)
2 T Dijon mustard
2 T olive oil
Minced fresh parsley
Minced fresh cilantro
salt and pepper to taste

 The finished result, with lamb chops cooked on a grill pan with olive oil, garlic and rosemary, my favorite--Yummmm.

As a sad side-note, I believe this is among maybe the top three dumbest things I have ever read on the info super-highway: Soy is making kids gay  This guy is apparently a minister of some sort.

A tasty salad and dressing. I will give it a try. The cookbook idea is lovely.

The kids are all grown-up now, but I love the cookbook and although I'm changing to 4x6 format, will always cherish it.
