Very good!  I didn't have fresh oregano but had some fresh dried greek seasoning that worked perfectly.  I also added some halved yellow cherry tomato that needed to get used up.  Fantastic.  I would cook the edamame a little longer - 5 minutes - next time.  This would be great for a picnic or pot luck.  Will make again.

I added diced red onion. With Triscuits, this made a very tasty vegetarian lunch.

I have made this a couple of times and both my husband and I have really enjoyed it. It has a fresh taste and is easy to put together. The second time I added scallions.
