Edamame Salad Recipe

Salad Ingredients

  • 5 oz. of mixed greens
  • 1 carrot peeled, sliced thin
  • 1 cup of edamame, cooked and shelled
  • ½ a cucumber, diced
  • ¼ red onion (or ½ a small one), sliced very thin
  • ½ Haas avocado, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup red and yellow cherry tomatoes, halved

 

Salad Dressing Ingredients

  • ½ cup of seasoned rice vinegar
  • ¼ cup of soy sauce
  • Splash of chili oil (optional)
  • Sesame seeds

 

Directions

Start with a serving bowl for your salad.  In the bowl, mix up all the veggies gently.  All the bright colors should be mixed throughout.

In a glass bowl, mix together the seasoned rice vinegar, soy sauce, and chili oil (if you choose to use it).

Pour the dressing over the veggies and toss it together. 

Top with sesame seeds, and give it a final mix.

It’s really that simple, and there is no oil so it’s very fresh, healthy, and delicious!
