"Soy you can't cook?" - Quick, Easy, and Yummy Recipe For The Kitchen Catastrophe-Prone Cook

Here's a super simple salad loaded with healthy protein from soybeans! Great side dish with salmon, yummy lunch or snack, and great on top of some mache salad greens.

What you'll need:
1 bag of frozen shelled edamame
1 bunch of fresh basil
dried cranberries
feta cheese
olive oil

okay.....i don't even know if i'm going to need to explain this one...but here goes.
Boil the edamame per directions on the bag. Strain and cool completely. Pull the basil leaves from the stem, rinse, dry (salad spinner helpful), stack in groups and slice cross ways to make thin strips. Place both into a large salad/mixing bowl. Add dried cranberries, feta cheese, 1 tbsp olive oil, and pepper to your liking. Toss and serve, or chill and enjoy later.
