Roasted Corn & Edamame Salad

 I can't believe it's been  2 weeks since my last post! I hate when that happens, but sometimes life just gets in the way.  Work has been crazy as ever. However, in 2 weeks I will have my life back for the summer. I can't wait!  Lots of trips, reading, cooking & exploring to do!
J's dad & stepmom were in town this past weekend. Of course I had to work, but I was able to escape & have dinners with them...which is really the best part of having visitors in town, besides hanging out with them that is :)

We decided on Saturday night to head up the coast to Malibu & head to one of my favorite spots, so appropriately named, Dukes.

We didn't think we'd get a pretty sunset since it was overcast all day, but look how wrong we were! Being able to escape to a place like this is what makes me fall in love with California over and over again.  Now, on to the food...

 I've been trying to be better about eating veggies with dinner & I stumbled across this recipe on SELF.  Now their version looks fancier, BUT it tasted delicious & was an AWESOME side dish.  The dish is served cold, so on a hot summer day, this would make an awesome lunch or a side dish at a BBQ.   It lasted us two nights & was almost better the next day as the flavors had time to settle in. Crunchy & light & HEALTHY.  Exactly what this girl needs.
