Edamame and Barley Salad

Edamame and Barley Salad

"My boyfriend and I wanted to incorporate more soy into our diets, and my sister introduced us to edamame. This is an easy way to use the frozen, shelled beans. The recipe takes a little time to assemble, but if you chop the vegetables while the barley cooks, it's ready in 25 minutes." -Maggie Knapp, Fort Worth, TX
