Edamame, Tomato, Corn Salad with Lemony Dressing


Only 6 simple ingredients needed to make this colorful edamame salad! It's so fresh and light, yet pleasantly filling. Hearty edamame, juicy tomatoes, sweet corn, onions, and herbs tossed with a bright lemony dressing - all the textures and flavors play so nice 😊 It's an awesome dish in the summer (think fresh corn and garden tomatoes!) but I love it year round thanks to organic frozen corn and available sweet cherry tomatoes. Be sure to find organic produce (especially edamame and corn) if possible. It's such a fun and versatile recipe - check my notes below for variations!

Add a splash of red wine vinegar for extra tang - I love this!
