Equipment

Ingredients

  • Dressing:
  • 3 Tbsp. low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh orange juice
  • 1 Tbsp. rice wine vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp. sesame oil
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • 2 garlic cloves chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped ginger
  • ¼ cup canola oil
  • Salad:
  • 2 cups shelled edamame
  • ½ cup diced red onion
  • ½ cup diced persian cucumber
  • 1 cup diced red bell pepper
  • ½ cup shredded carrots
  • ¼ cup minced fresh cilantro
  • ¼ tsp. szechwan pepper Or red pepper flakes

Instructions

  • In a blender combine all the dressing ingredients except the canola oil.
  • Blend on medium for 30 seconds and then increase to high for another 30 seconds. Blend until the ginger and garlic are finely minced. Scrape down the blender jar.
  • Slowly drizzle in the canola oil.
  • Blend again until the dressing is smooth - about 10 seconds.
  • Combine all the salad ingredients in a bowl. Drizzle with the dressing and toss to combine.

Notes

Notes:

  • This edamame salad can be made up to two days in advance. As the salad sits, the vegetables will become more tender, so if you like a crisper salad, you can prep all the salad ingredients and make the vinaigrette ahead of time and toss just before serving. 
  • This salad really makes use of the "bits and pieces" in your vegetable crisper drawer. Other vegetables that are delicious in the salad include napa cabbage, zucchini, mushrooms, broccoli and /or snow peas.
  • For a smooth dressing, you really need to use a blender.
