Edamame Amaranth Healthier salad is incredibly delicious and super healthy! After making the Cheesy Amaranth Bites, I am loving quinoa and have so many great plans for this versatile ingredient. My loved ones, especially my little girl and I, love edamame, maize, and red peppers, so combining them in this salad was a perfect choice. My little girl Kylie and I ate it for lunch, but it would also be a tremendous side dish. My husband had a dish of it when he got home from work and he really enjoyed it! As I searched Pinterest for some healthy quinoa options, I came across this unique recipe at Eating Well Living Thin and it will be made many times for my family!
