It's not just potluck anymore…

We got lots of compliments on the Edamame Salad that we served last Wednesday, and again for the Sunday meal for the Feeding South Dakota fundraiser.   Here’s the recipe for those of you who asked for it, and if you didn’t get a chance to try it, I highly recommend it.  You can serve it as a side salad or as a dip with tortilla chips.  Shelled edamame (soybeans) can be found in the freezer section of your grocery store.  If you like it spicy, add the jalapenos or if you want a milder chili pepper taste, add some canned mild roasted green chilis.  This recipe is adapted from the cookbook Raising the Salad Bar, by Catherine Walthers.
