Arugula, Edamame & Fennel Salad


After making the fava bean salad from Hell last week (can I say that? It’s true…), I decided there must be a better, faster, easier, and just as tasty salad out there waiting to be discovered. Sometimes you just have to make one up yourself…

Here is the new recipe. No peeling fava beans. Yea!!
