the musical fruit

here is yet another skinny bitch recipe..... i make it almost every monday and put it in my sweet peas lunch so he stays full and wont eat burger king.
i never follow a recipe exactly because i do not like to waste a whole can of something because a recipe calls for one cup. your never gonna eat the rest of the can of corn in the fridge so put the whole fucking thing in the salad!  waste not want not

1-can corn
1-half bag frozen shelled edamame
1-can red kidney beans drained rinsed
1-can chic peas drained rinsed
2- green onions sliced
1- red pepper sliced and diced
2-tbs parsley fresh italian or dried 
2-tbs basil

place all ingredients in a large bowl (with a lid for later)
stir so that everything is well acquainted

in a smaller bowl, start your dressing

3-tbs red wine vinegar
1-big spoon full of dijon mustard
3-tbs olive oil

whisk together and then drizzled over salad.
stir and then let sit in fridge for at least one hour
