Edamame Three Bean Salad

School’s officially in session! And, I have to say I am pretty darn happy.  Who knows if this feeling will last, but I’m hoping.  This is the first time, since I was a teacher trainer a few years ago, that I have been excited to walk into a school. Cool, right?

With the new job , and the refreshed work outlook, comes lunch preparation. For me, personally, it is really important that I plan what I am going to eat.  I leave my house at 6AM, leave work to head to the gym by 7PM, and arrive home by 8:30-9PM.  There is a ton of opportunity to become lazy, hit the drive thru’s, or quick fixes.

Bean salads are my go-to brown bag meals.Filling, hearty and satisfying, bean salads keep beautifully for the entire work week.  Key! Whether they’re made by soaking dry beans, or with canned beans, you can’t go wrong.

Several years ago, I made this Edamame Three-Bean Salad. One of the many recipes I made from the  Skinny Bitch in the Kitch book, along with the sage pesto, 3-bean became a fast favorite and ended up on the regular rotation after first bite. So, because it has been so long since it made its appearance here, and because I think it will be your favorite, too, it needs to reposted.

This sounds so good. I’d leave out the corn for South beach but otherwise it would be perfect for me. And I could use some of my garden basil which is going crazy right now.

Thanks Kalyn! It would be just as good without. :) In fact, that might be next month!

The dressing is so simple, low caloric and so good!

THanks Maris!

This is great pre-workout meal. I used to eat rise but just recently I started red beans and corn. You get energy and it is not so hard on my belly as pastas and toasted bread sandwiches. Edamame is an extra treat :)

I agree Stavros! I don’t eat that much bread anymore….this is just as filling

Good for you – sticking with your healthy eating habits in spite of a VERY hectic schedule. This looks like a great take-along lunch. Love the use of edamame.

THanks Rivki! It is my favorite lunch…and super easy!
