Herbed Edamame Salad with Pancetta

Jeff Coulson Author: Herbed Edamame Salad with Pancetta

Crispy bits of pancetta take this herb-packed salad a notch over the top. To ensure that the dressing clings, pat the cooked edamame and peas dry before tossing with the other ingredients. If you like, top with grilled chicken or fish for a more filling meal.
