Soybean, Arugula and Feta Salad

This is probably one of the most refreshing and satisfying salads I have eaten in a long time and is quick and easy to prepare.
I really do like soybeans and they are excellent paired with arugula and feta cheese.
The original recipe was from the book Gorgeous Greens by Annie Bell and called for fava beans rather than the soy beans.

Juice of half a LEMON
SEA SALT and freshly ground BLACK PEPPER
3 SCALLIONS, trimmed and finely sliced diagonally
6 Tbsp. coarsely chopped FLAT-LEAF PARSLEY
7 ounces FETA CHEESE, crumbled

Follow package directions and cook frozen soybeans in the microwave.
Toss the soybeans with 6 Tbsp. olive oil and the lemon juice, salt and pepper and set aside to cool.

Once the soybeans have cooled, toss in the scallions and 2/3 of the parsley.
Serve on a bed of arugula with an extra drizzle of olive oil and top with the crumbled feta.

I do love soybeans too. I'm so glad to find them shucked and frozen in our grocery store nowadays. Salad sounds delicious!

Are those soybeans or edamame? I recently sprouted soybeans for cooking and found I didn't like the taste - I much prefer sprouts from mung beans, which are smaller. Edamame I really like just as they are. This looks very refreshing! I have frozen edamame, goat cheese and lemon in the house and still have parsley which has moved from the deck to the garage. It's a go! Thanks for sharing.
