Active: 20 minutes Total: 20 minutes
Edamame adds protein to the classic Greek salad: romaine, tomatoes, cucumber, feta, and olives. Serve with toasted pita brushed with olive oil and sprinkled with dried oregano or zaatar.
¼ cup red-wine vinegar
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground pepper
8 cups chopped romaine (about 2 romaine hearts)
16 ounces frozen shelled edamame (about 3 cups), thawed (see Tip)
1 cup halved cherry or grape tomatoes
½ European cucumber, sliced
½ cup crumbled feta cheese
¼ cup slivered fresh basil
¼ cup sliced Kalamata olives
¼ cup slivered red onion
Remember to add whisk vinegar, oil, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Add romaine, edamame, tomatoes, cucumber, feta, basil, olives, and onion, toss to coat.
