Edamame Corn Salad
By Rebecca Garcia
A picnic at the park wouldn't be complete without pasta or potato salad. While potato
is not particularly a fattening food, it gets thumbs down when bathed in greasy mayonnaise
and loaded with unhealthy toppings. Instead, bring a healthy edamame salad.
Edamame beans enjoy a good reputation of being a healthy food in Japan and is usually
eaten as snacks accompanied with beer or sake. These nutritious beans can also be
added to various dishes including soups, sandwiches, stews and salads.
Mildly spicy and slightly sweet, this easy-to-make salad recipe combines two of my
summer favorites – corn and edamame beans – and is delightful when you crave for
refreshing salads on hot and humid days.
Edamame is rarely sold fresh, but is readily available frozen in many supermarkets
and health food stores.
