This is my favorite salad of ALL TIME. The edamame is the star of the show. Filled with healthy & fresh veggies covered in a light red wine vinegar dressing, this stuff goes FAST at gatherings, so make a double batch if you want to keep your friends.
Since the day I started this blog, I have been excited to write a post about this salad. I’m a huge lover of salads, so it holds great meaning when I tell you that this recipe is in my Salad Top 3 list. It is DELICIOUS. It is fresh and healthy and I could eat it every day of my life. I’m not kidding.
WHAT IS EDAMAME?
The origins of edamame is from East Asia and it’s an immature soybean pod. They are a popular snack or appetizer served at restaurants and you can find them in your grocers freezer.
Edamame is a plant based food and it has no added sugar. This is a gluten free food as well. They are great to enjoy in food or as a snack because they are also full of protein and calcium.
HOW TO PREPARE THE BEST EDAMAME SUMMER SALAD
This quick to prepare salad boasts great flavor and a chewy edamame that you’ll fall in love with!
In a large bowl, combine the red wine vinegar, olive oil, cilantro, lime juice, sugar, salt and garlic. Set aside.
Bring a large saucepan of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the frozen shelled edamame and boil for 3 minutes. Add corn to the boiling water and continue cooking for 1 minute. Drain well and pour into the bowl with the dressing. Gently mix in the cherry tomatoes and green onions. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours before serving.
Serve this as your side dish or your main dish – it’s a filling, delicious salad! It is super simple to throw together. And it’s pretty. I’m sure it would also be a crowd-pleaser, but I wouldn’t know this for sure because it never makes it to the crowd when I prepare it.
CAN I EAT THE EDAMAME PODS RAW OR DO I HAVE TO COOK THEM?
Edamame is sold both as beans or in the pods. They can be prepared by steaming or boiling them and they are both deliciously served hot or cold.
WHICH PART OF THE GREEN ONION DO YOU EAT?
Scallions, or green onions, are edible from the white root to the green leaf portion of the vegetable. Often the white root is what is used in a dish but the green leaves are excellent as a garnish or added into a salad.
It is also super simple to throw together. And it’s pretty. I’m sure it would also be a crowd-pleaser, but I wouldn’t know this for sure because it never makes it to the crowd when I prepare it.
