Recipe: Edamame Salad

Posted on | June 25, 2010 | 14 Comments

In a sea of mayo-filled summer salads my edamame version is a standout. Goes great with fish, burgers, and even BBQ. It’s my go to side for summer potlucks. Friends always ask me for the recipe. As I type I am munching on a bowl for lunch. Perfect for hot days when you want something fresh but don’t feel like cooking. Happy Weekend!

1 bag of frozen shelled Edamame
½ cup seasoned rice vinegar
2 T. canola oil
1 T. sugar
zest of one lime
juice of one lime
Salt and Pepper to Taste
8 ounce bag of radishes (sliced)
3-4 medium sized carrots (I buy the pre-sliced guys in a bag)
½ c sliced almond (toast in a small skillet)
1 cup of cilantro (chopped)

Rinse edamame with cool water till the ice comes off the shells. In my experience cooking the edamame makes it mushy. You want to keep the crunch—no need to cook. Put in a bowl with sliced radishes, carrots, and toasted almonds. Whisk together vinegar, oil, sugar, and S+P, and lime. Pour over vegetables and stir till well combined. Stir in cilantro and place in the fridge for about a 1/2 hour. Can be made the night before. Totally fine serving at room temperature for a potluck buffet.

    This looks yummy!…and I am glad it is sans mayo as I think mayo is the grossest stuff on the planet.

    happy weekend

    I see rice vinegar and cilantro. That is all I need I to know! (let me know if you need a go-to bread salad recipe. Not nearly as healthy but divine!)

    Looks very refreshing and perfect for summer! I’m always in search of a fresh summer salad, something to cool down with on a hot day. I recently made Giada De Laurentiis’ “Mediterranean Farro Salad.” It was soooo good. Perfect for lunch or dinner, but definitely a BBQ must! Here’s the recipe if you are interested:


    (p.s: I substituted red pepper for cucumber. It was a very good choice in the end…)

    Super yum! I usually just get the broccoli slaw from Trader Joe’s and do a similar vinaigrette. This is much more interesting and colorful! Thanks for the hot tip.

    This looks wonderful. I think it would be great with garbanzo beans in place of the edamame too.

    Thanks for the recipe! Wanted to let you know that your blog is making waves in the north country. A lovely woman running the shop Sugar Tools in Camden, Maine was chatting with me about Marblehead. “That’s where Katy Elliot lives!” she exclaimed. I asked if she knew you, and she said only from your blog. Sugar Tools is a fabulous store. From what I’ve seen of your taste, you would love it – so do stop by if your Maine treks take you to Camden (and make sure you have dinner at Primo in Rockland too!!).

    Ha! What a compliment! I’ll be up in Rockland/Camden area in early August. I ‘ll have to stop by her shop.

    We are totally having dinner at Primo…already in the works.

    I too just made this lovely summer salad, and have now added it to my recipe box of favorites. It’s even better the next day.
