edamame cilantro salad recipe, a healthy salad recipe with a homemade ginger dressing

Edamame Cilantro Salad Recipe is not only beautiful it takes just a few minutes to make and the ingredients are easy to keep on hand! Also, it’s a crowd-pleaser and great for potlucks, picnics, and tailgating.

Edamame Cilantro Salad Recipe

I used frozen, shelled edamame which is easier to find and cheaper than fresh. Then I microwaved it according to the instructions on the packet. Edamame is high in protein and a good source of antioxidants and fiber.

For the corn, I used organic frozen in a steam bag. That too was easy to cook in the microwave.

Optional ingredients that you may consider are tomatoes, chickpeas, and/ or avocado. As well, you can easily make it go further by adding pasta.

You can use a store-bought Asian vinaigrette, but I do prefer homemade (listed below).

  2. Also, Edamame Cilantro Salad Recipe makes a lovely light lunch or side dish.
  3. You can use all olive oil if you don’t have sesame oil. However, sesame oil gives a really bold, nice flavor.
  4. Finally, I used Pickled Red Onions. You can use raw or pickled.
