What I love about this salad is that it’s super-healthy (hello protein and antioxidants!), it’s quick and easy to make and most importantly… it’s absolutely delicious!

Edamame salad can be served so many different ways. It’s great in a homemade sushi bowl or alongside steamed rice, Chili Crisp Cucumber Salad and Miso- Honey Salmon. It can be topped with grilled chicken or seared tuna for extra protein. It’s even great as a side dish for picnics and BBQs.

Ingredients You’ll Need:

Here’s everything you need to make this salad: one bag of frozen, shelled edamame, cucumber, snap peas, green onion, rice vinegar, sugar, toasted sesame oil, soy sauce and toasted sesame seeds.

    Great Recipe. I use it of all the Edamame recipes since it’s all shades of green. I like the aesthetics. I use the baby cucumbers to get more crunch to the salad. I also blanch the Edamame from frozen for about 10-15 seconds & rinse in cold water, faster. Sometimes I add some Shichimi. Passed it on to mom’s in daughter’s class.
