What to Have for Lunch: Low-Fat and Healthy Turkey-Edamame Salad


People ask me all of the time, “What do you eat for lunch?” I guess because I am in my kitchen all of the time, or because I work and workout a ton, they are curious. Also, I think most of us get in a lunchtime rut and eat the same things for lunch over and over (I know I do). I threw together this simple salad in about 10 minutes this week, and my neighbor had stopped by and thought what I threw together was so fabulous. I thought others might enjoy this Turkey-Edamame Salad as well, but feel free to add whatever is in your vegetable bin and use your favorite reduced-fat salad dressing.
