Roberta's Edamame Energy Salad

This recipe is brought to you by Roberta. 

Roberta is one of my closest friends. Half the year we are neighbors and the other half we are pen pals, as she splits her time between California and Vancouver. I've told you about how healthy Roberta is, but have I told you about what a great friend she is? She emails me something insightful and kind about each blog post I write. She made me a beanie, just the perfect thickness for cold nights on the water. She believes in my dreams too. I hope you all have a Roberta in your lives, but if you don't, you can at least have one of her recipes.  

1/2 C shelled edamame
1/4 C black beans
1/4 C corn
1/4 C chopped red pepper
1/4 C chopped mango
1 T chopped cilantro
1 T lime juice
2 tsp olive oil
1/4 tsp ground cumin

Combine all ingredients and let them sit in the refrigerator for about half an hour before eating. Enjoy!

  1. Hello! I just found your blog and wanted to stop and tell you how much I'm loving it. I think you're living the life I've always wanted. Might seem weird for a girl from Toronto Canada but living and breathing water is something I admire. I definitely can't surf (well I haven't tried anyway) but it's on the bucket list!! I'm so happy I found your blog! It's so different from any of the others I follow. Gorgeous photos lady!
