Avocado and Edamame Salad

Ever since I found this recipe, I've been excited to make it. It's go som great super foods! Can you say edamame AND avocado? And those are two of my new favorites. The dressing had great flavor, the edamame was crunchy and the avocado gave it that sweet, oily taste! I would highly recommend this the next time you need some good, healthy lunch or snack foods!

This salad, along with the dressing, actually lasted an extra couple of days pretty well! The only exception being the avocado browning slightly. It's not like lettuce salads that get soggy right away.
