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.


Edamame Corn Salad Recipe

(serves 3-4)



1 (12 ounce) package frozen shelled edamame (or lima beans)

½ can sweet yellow corn

⅓ cup red bell peppers, diced

½ medium red onion, diced

2 Serrano peppers, finely chopped

¼ cup chopped cilantro

1 large tomato, diced



3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

¼ cup rice vinegar

2 tablespoon honey

½ teaspoon cayenne pepper

¼ teaspoon salt

1 clove garlic, minced


How to make edamame salad

1. Place dressing ingredients in a small bowl. Whisk until well combined. Set aside.


2. Combine edamame beans, corn, both peppers, onion, tomato and cilantro in a separate bowl.


3. Pour dressing and toss all ingredients together to blend thoroughly.


4. Cover bowl with plastic wrap. Place in the refrigerator for 1 hour to allow flavors to develop.
