Frozen Edamame (Young Soy Beans) are available from many supermarket stores these days. Edamame is a great snack, and also a fantastic cooking ingredient. If you have never used Edamame for cooking before, Salad is the easiest option for you to try. I often mix Edamame with Canned Mixed Beans to make a salad. I seasoned this salad only with Salt, Black Pepper and Lemon Juice. I added No Oil, but you get good Oil form Avocado. It’s a healthy salad with loads of different nutrients.
1/2-1 cup Edamame Beans *thawed if frozen
1/2-1 Cucumber *Today I used 1/2 Continental Cucumber
1/8 Red Onion *finely chopped
1 can (400g) Mixed Beans *drained and rinsed
1 Avocado *cut into small pieces
1 tablespoon chopped Parsley
Salt & Black Pepper
1 tablespoon Lemon Juice OR Vinegar
30g Fetta Cheese *crumbled
Coriander OR Other Herbs instead of Parsley
- Cut Cucumber and Carrot into small pieces in the size similar to Beans. Place in a mixing bowl, add Edamame Beans, season with 1 pinch Salt, and mix well.
- Add drained Mixed Beans, Red Onion, Avocado and Parsley, and season with Salt, Black Pepper and Lemon Juice (OR Vinegar).
- *Note: Fetta Cheese is a great addition to this salad. You may wish to add other Herbs such as Coriander.
