Winter Citrus Edamame Salad

Since I announced I was pregnant (btw, I am pregnant), everyone has been asking me: WHAT ARE YOU EATING!? It might be disappointing to hear that more than anything I have been craving fruit, especially citrus fruit! Good timing since citrus is now at its peak.

I made this salad combo recently, and couldn’t eat it fast enough. You could also add some feta or goat cheese to this salad to really take it up a notch. Hope you enjoy!
