Corn, Edamame, and Red Bell Pepper salad

Well, the title has most of the ingredients in this salad.  This one is absolutely simple to make, and looks and tastes great.  A friend of mine used to make this and I always took the left-overs (if there was any) home with me.  She has moved out of Colorado now.  So if I feel like having this salad, I have to make it myself.  Don't the colors look gorgeous?  Here is her recipe:

Corn, Edamame, and Red Bell Pepper Salad

Here is what you need (serves 6 - 8 people easily when served as a side dish) :

  • 1  12 oz. pkg. frozen corn kernels
  • 1 16 oz. pkg. frozen edamame in pods (you can use the frozen edamame beans instead)
  • 2 red bell peppers, diced
  • 2 green chilies, minced (Jalapeno or Serrano peppers work well)
  • salt to taste
  • freshly ground pepper to taste
  • juice of one lemon
  • few sprigs cilantro, chopped

Here is how I made it:

  1. Cook the corn and the edamame in a microwave according to package directions.  If you are using edamame in the pod, pop the beans out.
  2. Place corn, edamame, and red bell peppers in a bowl.
  3. Add the green chilies, salt, pepper, and lemon juice.  Mix well and taste to adjust seasoning
  4. Garnish with cilantro.
