edamame and corn salad


this is based on this recipe, which i found in self a while ago. i made my version using the ingredients we had on hand, which were mostly leftovers from other recipes. with some multigrain crackers, it makes a great light lunch on a hot day. because i am a bad food blogger and made this like 3 weeks ago without writing down what i did, this isn't really a recipe, just a list of ingredients.
corn and edamame salad serves 1 as a main dish, 2 or 3 as a side
*1 ear of corn
*a handful of shelled edamame (3/4 cup, maybe?)
*about 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise (i used cholesterol free because that's what we had. i don't like mayonnaise that much, but this salad needs a little to hold it together. if you like it, add more.)
*lemon juice (sorry, i have absolutely no idea how much i added. to taste, i guess)
*about 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
*salt and pepper
*sriracha, or other hot sauce
1. fill a large pot with water, heat over the stove, and add corn once water is boiling. cook for about 3-5 minutes, until corn is tender. remove from heat.
2. while corn is cooling, put the rest of the ingredients in a medium bowl and mix together.
3. shell corn, add kernels to your salad, mix and season with salt and pepper to taste. top with sriracha, also to taste

I actually NEVER follow recipes. even my own recipes are just estimates! I like it this way, actually..it leaves space for improvisations! :-)
The salad looks nice and crunchy, perfect for summer!
