This Edamame and Tomato Salad is so easy to whip up. It's a wonderfully healthy lunch salad.
I've always been a pretty healthy person. I grew up taking vitamins and I still take them almost daily. My diet is relatively healthy, with the exception of the occasional treat every now and then. Fortunately, I've never suffered with many health issues or allergies and neither have my children. However, lately I've come across many articles about wheat sensitivities and the symptoms people begin to experience when they develop wheat sensitivities, especially later in life. I'm learning how common it is for adults to "sudddenly" get these sensitivities and I find it all very interesting.
I'm only beginning to learn about wheat sensitivities and I going to conduct my own experiment...on myself. I'm going to go "wheat-free" or gluten-free for a little while and see if some of my own symptoms disappear. I'll let you know what I learn and I'd love to hear from any of you who are familiar with wheat sensitivities and food allergies . It's really very fascinating to me.
So today, I want to share with you this fresh and tasty Edamame and Tomato Salad that I whipped up for lunch today. I love edamame, it's packed with protein and is very filling. I added some olive oil and balsamic vinegar and a hefty pinch of ginger for added zest. The recipe is for one serving. If you'd like to prepare this salad for more than one, just increase the amount of all the ingredients. It's a very basic recipe that you can adjust according to your tastes. Enjoy!
