Healthy Edamame Salad
Prep time
Total time
Recipe type: Salad
Serves: 4-6
  • 1 bag frozen edamame
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 cup green beans, cut to about 1½ inches
  • 1, 4 ounce container feta cheese
  • juice from half a lemon
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ⅛ teaspoon black pepper
  1. Cook the edamame according to package direction (I cooked mine in microwave with a little water). Let them cool completely. Place them in the refrigerator to speed up the cooling process.
  2. In a large bowl add water with ice - you will need this for the green beans.
  3. Blanch the green beans in boiling water for 1 minute and 30 seconds. Drain green beans and immediately add them to the ice water. This is called shocking and stops the cooking process and also keeps the green beans bright green! Remove them from the ice water after a few minutes and pat them dry.
  4. Add the edamame, green beans, and the rest of the ingredients to a large bowl. Gently toss together and enjoy.
Store salad in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. If you shop at Trader Joe's, they sometimes have already cooked edamame. Purchase 2 packages and this will take care of having the cook the frozen edamame.
