Edamame Quinoa Salad

So, I tried an Edamame Quinoa Salad from the deli the other day and it was awesome! I was determined to come home and find a recipe to replicate it. I searched online and found something fairly similar.  I made a few changes and came up with this, it's delicious!!! I can't wait for warmer weather and fun summery salads every day!

3 cups frozen, shelled edamame
2 cups frozen white corn
1 red pepper
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
6 chopped green onions
1 can black beans drained and rinsed
1 cup cooked quinoa (1/3 uncooked) cooled

1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons dijon mustard
3 cloves minced garlic

Put your frozen corn and edamame in a strainer,  dump the black beans in and rinse for about 2 minutes with luke warm water (this will defrost the corn and edamame). Toss edamame, corn, beans, pepper, quinoa, cilantro and onions in a bowl. In a small jar (I like to use my magic bullet with the lid) combine all dressing ingredients and shake like crazy. Pour over the salad ingredients, mix and let chill. Enjoy!
