This big salad is a feast for the eyes and an everyday way to incorporate nutrient-rich beets and plant-based protein from edamame (green soybeans). If you're not a fan of cilantro, mix in freshly chopped basil or dill instead.

I liked it. My husband would prefer it with a sweeter salad dressing. Didn't think I would like raw beets, but they are good.
