Edamame, Cranberry, & Feta Salad

I could spend hours in Fresh Market. Fresh flowers, colorful produce, unique products, yummy coffee tastings, large bins of raw nuts, seeds, and dried fruit, and the most scrumptious sushi eva. I find very cool ideas about food combinations and flavors just browsing the store.
Fresh, simple ingredients make a big statement. When cooking with quality ingredients the flavor cannot be topped. This recipe was totally inspired from a simple edamame salad in Fresh Market. It seemed just too easy to purchase the ready prepared salad, and I knew it would be more fun and rewarding to recreate it myself.
Visually this salad is appealing and perfect for a Christmas party. I love how the sweet tart cranberries contrast the salty bites of feta. Edamame adds a creamy texture along with protein and fiber that you can feel good about. Just combine 3 simple ingredients together and you’ll have an awesome show stopping salad for your next holiday gathering. I’ve made this for two parties this season and it’s been a big hit!

    I bought this at Fresh Market last week and it was delicious. I looked at the ingredients label and saw I had pretty much everything (except the cranberries!!!) so I think I'll try dried apricots instead. I'm sure that will be delicious, too. Thanks for the measurements!

    @ TFM we do not cook the edamame. Just defrost. One ingredient that you are missing is the black pepper.

    I made this last year for a potluck and loved it! I was planning on making it for our annual Labor Day gathering, and it just occurred to me to add pasta to these ingredients for a yummy pasta salad!
