A fantastic fusion of Greek, Japanese and Italian ingredients, enjoy this veggie salad over a bed of romaine lettuce or as the base for a piece of grilled meat or fish. it's also delicious with diced cooked shrimp tossed into the mix. Garnish with slivered almonds for crunch, if desired. Ricotta salata or queso fresco are worthy salty and crumbly alternatives to feta cheese. Edamame is a filling source of vegetable protein that is rich in healthy fiber, antioxidants, and vitamin K. Cooked favas or lima beans are good substitutes for edamame and another nice way to change up this versatile salad.
