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.
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.
