Multi-Bean Salad With Edamame

Posted on May 27, 2011


One of my favorite restaurants in Orlando is an organic tea room and cafe’ called Infusion Tea.  They have a bean salad that is probably one of my top 20 favorite dishes.  I keep meaning to beg ask them nicely for the recipe.  Until then, I am pretty darn happy with this rendition!
