Ingredients

    3 cups cooked quinoa
    1/2 cup craisins
    2 cups edamame
    1/2 cup chopped almonds
    1/4 large red onion
    Zest of one lemon
    Juice of one lemon
    1/2 tsp red pepper
    3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    2 cups chopped parsley
    1 salt to taste

Directions

Rinse quinoa until the water is clear. Add water, bring to boil, reduce to a low simmer, cover the pan, and cook until it's fluffly, about 20 minutes. Don't lift the cover to peek. (If using a rice cooker, use white rice setting.)

If you want the cranberries soft and plump, cook them with the quinoa. If you want them chewy in the salad, toss them in without cooking.

While the quinoa is cooking, finely chop the parsley, onion, and garlic and zest the lemon. If your edamame is frozen, take it out of the freezer and set it in some warm water to thaw.

In a separate bowl, mix the garlic, lemon juice and zest, pepper, salt, and olive oil.

When the quinoa is done, fluff it with a fork, add the dressing, mix it well, then let it cool for 5-10 minutes.

When it has cooled a bit and absorbed the dressing, mix in the dried cranberries, edamame, almonds, and onions. Lastly, add the parsley and mix it all together.
