Zesty Potato and Edamame Salad

What do you do when you have leftovers of a few different ingredients and don't know what to do with them? You throw them all together!

That is what I did with a handful of edamame and some leftover black beans, and as I looked around the kitchen my eyes landed on some red potatoes. There came my Aha! moment, and the creation of this deliciously fresh summertime salad.  This salad was gobbled up in the first hour of making it!

Watch my video to learn how to make it with the on-hand ingredients listed below:


  • 1 cup edamame beans
  • 2 cups black beans, drained and rinsed well
  • 6 small red potatoes, cut up
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 cup fresh parsley
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp Orange Muscat Champagne Vinegar (optional, from Trader Joe's. If you cannot find this delightful vinegar, substitute 1 tbs orange juice blended with 1 tsp organic sugar or splenda)
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp feta cheese, crumbled
Just a little F.Y.I: 1/2 tsp of dried oregano contains the same amount of antioxidants as 3 cups of raw spinach! It is also a surprising source of fiber (1 tsp has 0.8g) and bone-building vitamin K.

Serve as a side dish with chicken or fish, or on its own as a meal with a small piece of crusty bread drizzled with balsamic vinegar.

  1. Randa you are a natural!! This looks and sounds delish! I will enjoy cooking with you cyberly. I’m excited to see where God leads you in your new venture. Coffee would be great sometime! Love you!

  2. I was just wondering what I could throw together to go with my marinated chicken breasts! I just so happen to have all of this!! (except for the vinegar, would apple cider or red wine vinegar work?) Can’t wait to try it, my kids have always loved edamame. Oh, and you should know that Greek yogurt is my new favorite super food, I put it in everything! Ron’s running joke is “so…does this have greek yogurt?” Thanks for that tip!

  3. You might have made this already, but I would just omit the vinegar all together and just use the lemon juice – the Orange Muscat Vinegar from TJ’s has a citrus-y sweetness to it that is beautiful with the salad. If you have already tried it, let me know how it turned out. And lovin’ that Ron asks that! Greek Yogurt is so versatile, isn’t it? Glad you are enjoying it : )

  4. Thanks, Lori!
