"This is a refreshing and fulfilling pasta salad that has enough protein to be eaten alone as a small meal. The ingredients are more unique and sometimes healthier than many other macaroni salad dishes out there. This was created in my own kitchen recently, enjoy!"

1 (12 ounce) package
1/2 (1 pound) package
shelled edamame, or more to taste
mayonnaise, or more if needed
ground black pepper
1 (12 ounce) can
premium canned chicken, minced
hard-cooked eggs, chopped
sunflower seed kernels, or to taste
shredded Cheddar cheese
chopped green onions
This was really good! I did have to add a little more mayo (the warm pasta soaked it up), and omitted the hardboiled eggs (my husband doesn't like them) and the green onions. I added 1/4 tsp garlic powder as well after taste testing. I also added 3 stalks diced celery. This was a great lunch! (I didn't use quite as much edamame as called for, because I had to shell mine and it was a pain, it was a great addition though!)
My son thought it had a delicious flavor and he is hard to please.
This was our first time trying edamame and it is surprisingly good.
Thanks for a great recipe.
