This Avocado Edamame Salad Recipe is a superfood dream! It’s packed full of flavor and nutrients you will want to make this time and time again!

Avocado Edamame Salad

A good green on green on green salad is a keeper! The ‘greens’ in this salad are lettuce, avocado, edamame, cilantro, and green onions. Oh… and they’re even ‘green’ in the salad dressing! I used lime instead of lemon.

Honestly, lime is much better than lemon. Try squeezing lime juice on your salads, fish, shrimp, tacos, Mexican rice. It really makes everything better!

Avocado Edamame Salad


This is a colorful, filling, and nutritious entrée or side salad. Avocados, edamame, and lettuce are the main components.


First, don’t be intimated by the list of ingredients for this recipe, more specifically for the salad dressing. They are simple ingredients that you probably have in your pantry. Plus, the dressing comes together really quickly in a blender or even any jar with a lid!

Because there is already a creamy element, avocado, in this salad I like a vinaigrette dressing best. However, you do you and top it with your favorite salad dressing.

As well, if you just don’t like making vinaigrette or any salad dressing, feel free to pick up your favorite at the store. There are so many salad dressings to choose from now. I like this Green Chile Lime Salad Dressing or the Lemon & Herb Vinaigrette on this salad.

Avocado Edamame Salad


  • The best avocados to choose at the grocery store will yield to gentle pressure when you squeeze them. As well, you definitely don’t want avocados that are already mushy.
  • You can buy them a couple of days ahead of time so they have time to ripen. Furthermore, you can speed up the avocado ripening process. Simply place unripe avocados in a brown paper bag with an apple or banana for two to three days until they are ripe and soft.
  • Cut avocados just before serving as they will turn brown.
  • Squeeze lemon or lime juice over cut avocado then they won’t brown as quickly.

    I love edamame together with the avocado. So creamy and full of protein. Healthy and delish. What more could you ask for in a salad?
