Edamame and Bean Salad with Shrimp and Fresh Salsa

Becky Luigart-Stayner; Cindy Barr
Edamame can be cooked in the microwave in minutes, and everything else can be purchased already cooked to save time. Triple the recipe if you want to use the whole can of beans. Have an apple with your lunch, and you'll get close to 45 grams of carbohydrates--and a nice dose of fiber.
