About Spicy Edamame Chicken Salad

One of my favorite things about this recipe is that it keeps well. Just mix up the vegetables and keep the dressing and chicken in separate containers. It will stay fresh for several days and be ready to serve in minutes. We love to make it for Sunday dinner and then have it for lunch on Tuesday or Wednesday.

Top the salad off with peanuts for extra crunch and protein!
