  1. In a small saucepan, place the eggs and cover with 1 inch (2.5 cm) of cold water. Bring to a boil. Cook over medium heat for 5 minutes from the moment the water starts to boil. Add the edamame and continue cooking for 3 minutes.
  2. Drain and cool the eggs and edamame in cold water. Peel the eggs.
  3. Divide the vegetables and eggs (whole or sliced) into two airtight containers. When ready to serve, toss with the dressing.


For a complete meal, serve with pita or a whole wheat roll.
