I often make this simple salad with ‘Ponzu’. Today I used leftover Boiled Soy Beans, but sometimes I use Edamame Beans. The other day I added Crispy Chilli Oil that I have been crazy about, and I was totally impressed with the improvement in the flavour. Crispy Chilli Oil makes anything taste better. I used ‘Lao Gan Ma’ brand Crispy Chilli Oil, which is not very spicy. If you like very spicy food, add some hot Chilli.


2 Servings


1 cup Cooked Soy Beans *See ‘Boiled Soy Beans’ recipe
*Note: Instead of Boiled Soy Beans, you can use Edamame Beans.
