Edamame & White Bean Salad

Edamame & White Bean Salad + recipe | Glitter & Grace Blog

This bean salad is the perfect make-ahead dish for weekday lunches. It’s full of protein and fiber, so it will keep you full all day. It also provides a serving of veggies, and the super flavorful dressing is super delicious – the secret is sesame oil! I prepared this recipe last Sunday, and I’ve been enjoying it paired with brown rice crackers and fresh fruit all week for lunch. It’s the perfect healthy alternative to my normal green salad.
