1 bag shelled edamame frozen
1 package reduced sugar cranberries
1 chopped red bell pepper

Balsamic to taste (about 4 tbls)

Try Incan/Aztec red quinoa if you can get it for a dark red salad. This was my third time using Quinoa and I admit I was scared my first time. It is very similar to couscous or other whole-grain. It is almost as quick as Couscous to deal with and way healthier!
Portion out. Will keep 7 days and be delicious every day.
