Marilou: Would it be possible to have this salad as a meal and feel full? When I came up with the recipe, I thought so, but I can’t be totally sure.

Hubert: Yes, you could, since feta, chickpeas, black beans, and edamame contain protein! You could also serve it as a side, or a main at lunchtime.

Edamame (soybeans) are perfect for boosting the protein content of this recipe: a 1/2 cup contains about 9 grams of protein. As a bonus, they add a beautiful burst of bright green to your salad!
