Mama’s Edamame

Written By Pam Brandon and Anne-Marie Denicole On March 31, 2010


Edamame makes Mama’s salad delicious and nutritious.

Healthful Diva 101: always have something delish waiting in the fridge, ready to pounce on after a booty-busting workout or a hard day of shopping. We love crunchy, savory, satisfying tastes, and this simple edamame (soybean) salad keeps us happy.

Edamame are in the freezer section of your grocery store, still in the pod or shelled. And they pack a powerhouse of fiber and nutrition – a half cup has more protein than two eggs, and a generous dose of Vitamin C.

Stash this salad in the fridge as your go-to sustenance and watch the pounds melt away. With a piece of salmon or a chicken breast, this salad makes a meal.


Mama’s Edamame


2 cups shelled edamame

1/4 cup rice wine vinegar

2 tablespoons sesame oil

1 tablespoon grated ginger

1/2 teaspoon coarse salt

1/2 cup chopped napa cabbage

1/2 cup shredded carrots

8 radishes, thinly sliced

1/4 cup chopped cilantro

1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds, optional


Cook edamame according to package directions. Drain completely; set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together vinegar, oil, ginger and salt. Mix in remaining ingredients and toss with edamame. To serve, top with sesame seeds, if desired.  Serve chilled or at room temperature.
