Dr. Ann’s Healthy Edamame Salad


I wanted to share a recipe that my daughter and I threw together as a protein-packed side dish for dinner.  I served it with some Wild Alaskan Salmon and fresh green beans, but it works great alone as a light supper or lunch as well.

Edamame & Veggie Extravaganza

Serves 6

This is a wonderful recipe to take advantage of the superstar legume, edamame. And with the flavor and health blast you get from the other ingredients – the sky is the limit!


  • 1 lb frozen edamame (cook per package instructions)

  • 1 red bell pepper, diced

  • ½ cucumber, peeled, seeded, and diced

  • 1/3 cup jicama, diced

  • 1/3 cup carrots, diced

  • ¼ cup red onion, finely diced

  • ¼ cup dried apricots, diced

  • 1 tbs purple sage chopped

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • 1 tsp cumin

  • 1tbs country Dijon mustard

  • 3 tbs EVOO

  • 4 tbs seasoned rice vinegar

  • Salt and pepper to taste


Mix all ingredients together in a large salad bowl. Let flavors meld for a few minutes and serve.
