So I needed to take something to a potluck, and three eban salad is both easy to put together, and travels pretty well. Although I did break out my chilled travel bowl so it would make it there, and not need the fridge. It's pretty cool., literally, Take a look.
This altered recipe all started because I don't like green beans, not really, but I still wanted something green, and it should be a bean, edamame just seemed like a good choice.
Now, since we're talking about beans, there's also the not so pleasant subtopic of the gas it creates. There are two basic schools of thought on how to deal with, the sugar route and the cumin route. Pretty much every 3 bean salad recipe goes for sugar, except this one. Cumin, to make up for the lack of sweetness, I threw in a little corn.
To make the salad, combine.
1 1/2 cups edamame, shelled
1 can white beans
1 can kidney beans
2 stalks celery, chopped
1 cup corn kernals
1 cup cilantro, chopped
1/2 red onion chopped
2 tbsp lime juice
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp cumin
salt and pepper
You can dress this salad early, the celery will stand up well enough to last a couple of days.
Serving tip: I usually place the dressing at the bottom of the bowl and miz when ready to serce.

Happy Easter everyone. I thought I would share a few photos from around the house, since it was all festive for the occasion. These are the chocolate eggs, chocolate rabbit, and oh so cute chocolate carrots I "found" on Amazon.
link to last year's blog entry.
The really really dark egg, which I have been trying to get to happen forever, is actually a brown egg in old regular food coloring dye. That's it, the great secret, brown eggs can be colored deep dark beautiful colors. So now you know as well.
And here it is, the picture of the bread, choreg, I did in fact make them, they are basically finished we have one left, it was a pretty good year, if I do say so myself. You can check out the recipe for them here.
