sesame edamame salad with almonds

I needed to make a salad for a family BBQ, but was short on time. I had edamame in the freezer, and decided that it would make a great base for an impromptu salad. It turned out well... quick, healthy and tasty!

Sesame Edamame salad with Almonds

-3 cups shelled edamame, cooked according to package directions, and cooled.
-3 garlic cloves, minced
-1 teaspoon sesame oil
-1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted
-Juice of 1 lemon
-2 tablespoons sesame seeds
-1 Tablespoon soy sauce
-1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 3 cups baby greens
-Salt and pepper

Combine the first 8 ingredients. Toss in the greens and add salt and pepper to taste.
