    Kumquat the Cat's friend's Note:

    We both loved this. Very light, fresh tasting, good-for-you salad and the flavor improves the next day. I love edamame beans (aka soybeans), they are widely available frozen if not fresh. This makes a great side dish for dinner, and eat the leftovers at work for lunch. Add a bit more cheese if you can afford the calories. This is a Sara Foster recipe, from the April issue of Cottage Living.

      This is wonderful! I am able to get fresh soy beans at Trader Joes, so I made a special trip just to make this. I don't really like lima beans, so I upped the amount of edamames and peas. I didn't have white wine vinegar in the house, so I used red, but a little less than what the recipe called for. I also added just a pinch of sugar. The chives came from the garden. I used shaved parmesan instead of pecorino b/c that's what was in the fridge. I love the variety of greens in this salad. Very pretty. DD ate this right up. :) I'm having the leftovers for lunch today. Thanks for sharing. I'll make this again for sure! :)
