Salad of curly endive, sun-dried tomatoes, edamame and feta cheese

10 minutes to prepare • 5 minutes to cook • Serves 4



Spring is supposed to be here any minute.

Temperatures are raising up and it is time for me to start craving salads.
Salads are always one of my preferred choices because they are fast and easy to prepare. Moreover, you may exploit whatever you have in the fridge and in the cupboard, and make everyday a different one!
I especially love this one because it combines cooked beans and fresh green salad and has cheese too. Absolutely delicious!

Today we will employ edamame as special guest for our salad.
You may have tried it as an appetizer at a Japanese restaurant, but what exactly are those little green bean-looking things?
Edamame is a young soybean that has been harvested before the beans have had a chance to harden. It is among the few plant-based sources of complete protein and a cup of frozen edamame, unprepared, has only 130 calories! These soybeans are also a rich source of B-complex vitamins and vitamins C and K, as well as the minerals calcium, phosphorus and potassium.

You can buy them shelled or in the pod, fresh or frozen. I always buy frozen ones as they are easier to be found.
