Feta, Cranberry & Edamame Salad

Is it Friday already?! Is anyone else amazed at how fast time is flying by? It’s almost September!! I have a FULL September, and am ridiculously stoked for it.

September Plans:

  • football party (NFL season starts sooo soon!)
  • Rascal Flatts concert with Bestie
  • few church events
  • a friend’s wedding
  • Ninja and I’s 3 year anniversary!

And next week I should have something really exciting to share with you guys, but you’ll have to wait until then. I want to have it in my hands before I start bragging about it!

Today’s eats


  • green monster made with kale, flax, naner, kefir and ice
  • kefir with bloobs, whole wheat toast with PB, cantaloupe
  • sweet tater fries, turkey burger on top 1/2 whole grain bun with greens
  • naner soft serve

I know it looks like I’m missing a meal, but I promise you I did eat lunch. After my smoothie I ate a huge cup of this new creation!

Feta, Cranberry and Edamame Salad
A protein packed salad loaded with flavors. The perfect summer snack or side dish!


  • 1 pkg fresh edamame, shelled
  • 1/2 C dried cranberries
  • 1/4 C fresh basil, chopped
  • 1/2 C feta cheese
  • 1 T olive oil
  • squeeze of fresh lemon
  • pinch sea salt
  • pinch pepper

Boil some water in a small pan. Once boiling, add cranberries and remove from heat. Let rehydrate 5 minutes. Drain, then pat dry. Mix everything together. Let chill in the fridge for 30 minutes before devouring.


Bonus: I got the edamame on sale!



I must admit, I’m pretty sure my home-grown basil made this dish. It was so fresh and so delicious. The mixture of flavors in this salad are incredible!
