From the name alone this seems like an unbelievably simple salad to make. And you know what? It is!
Tired of serving a plain steamed green veggie every night, I decided to jazz up some broccoli with a bit of added color, texture and a sweet sauce. At first I wondered if the kids would just eat the edamame, almonds and cranberries and avoid the broccoli, but they ate every bite and ended up asking for seconds.
I usually have all of the ingredients to make this dish on hand as they're some of my staples. If you don't have them, they're worth picking up for whenever you want to enjoy this easy, yet impressive combination. Since you get a protein, a vegetable and a fruit, it's like a healthy trifecta!
