I copied and pasted this from the herb section. I posted it as a reply in a thread about mint. I figured it belonged here.

I use my mints in salads or with Lamb. I once tried a great recipe that I got off a magazine. I more or less remembered the recipe and tried it the other day..

Edamame salad:
Arugula (or other green leafy lettuce)
Soy beans(edamame)
Mint (sliced into thin ribbons)
Parmessiano Regiano cheese or other hard cheese(Pecorino Romano, Parmessan, etc)
Red Wine vinegar
About a tablespoon of sugar
Olive oil

The amounts of each ingredient are according to your likes. I typically use a handfull of arugula and mint..about 25 soy beans(already removed from pods)..and about a 1/4 cup of cheese.

Mix together the arugula, beans, mint, and cheese. In a seperate bowl, combine about about a 1/4 cup of red wine vinegar and the sugar. Once sugar is dissolved, drizzle in about a 1/4cup of olive oil while mixing with a whisk. Whisk until it emulsifies.(Looks like a salad dressing) Pour over salad and enjoy.

This recipe is loaded with essential vitamins, good fats, and protein! I've interchanged mints and types of lettuce and have always been satisfied.
