Quinoa, Edame Bean & Shitake Salad

I was super excited to have found fresh Edame beans in-store a couple of days ago. This salad is super easy with the dressing being the champ!
Sharp, Sweet & Spicy….. DELICIOUS!!
Serves 1 as main, 2 as a side salad
Make dressing:
80 ml fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 1/2 tablespoons Tamari Soy Sauce (wheat free)
1 tablespoon Honey
1 dessert spoon Sriracha Hot Chilli Sauce
Pinch of Salt

Whisk together and set aside.

Prepare Salad:
