Quinoa Corn Bean and Edamame Salad

This is great for a side dish or for lunch !!  Quinoa, corn and black beans are always a good combination; quinoa and edamame is also a good combination - so why not combine all of them into one !!!  The edamame and celery give the salad a crunchy texture !

Edamame are immature soybeans in the pod and are popular in Japan and  China.  

I made this for company a couple of weeks ago and they LOVED it !!!  They liked the crunch from the edamame and they LOVED the flavor... there was NO leftover salad after they were gone !

2 cups cooked Quinoa
1 can corn, drained
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 onion, chopped
1 bell pepper, chopped
1 - 8 oz package of edamame (shelled), cooked
1 Tbsp dried cilantro
1 Tbsp dried parsley
1/4 cup brown rice vinegar
1 tsp minced jar garlic
1 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp assorted chili peppers spice (I used  Nanami Togarashi  ) or use  1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
2 tsp Bragg Liquid Aminos
2 stalks celery, chopped

Mix everything together in a bowl - serve immediately or after it has been in the fridge.  I thought it tasted better after it had been refrigerated first.
