Greek Edamame Salad

Edamame, or soybeans are a fantastic way to add some variety to your diet.  It's also a way to tiptoe into a vegan way of eating if you are vegan-curious.  Here I have taken edamame, which is extremely versatile and combined with Greek flavors to create a refreshing salad that is delicious any time of year.  This is one of those salads that is more like assembling - no cooking required.  It does taste better the next day as all salads do once they have had a chance to meld.  I used shelled edamame that I can readily find in the frozen food section (two bags are used for this recipe).  I also would like to note that please use amazing olives for this dish - the kind you find in an olive bar at your local grocer.  Canned olives lack so much flavor and character, this is where you splurge.

2 - 12 oz. bags shelled edamame (I use Sunrich Naturals brand)
1 red onion, chopped small
1/2 - 8 oz. jar Mezetta Julienne Cut Sin-Ripened Dried Tomatoes, chopped
2 cups quality, pitted Kalamata or Greek Olives
4 oz. crumbled Feta Cheese
1/2 cup Girards Greeg Feta Salad Dressing

Combine ingredients in a medium to large bowl and stir together to combine.  Serve immediately or let rest a day for flavors to meld.
