The secret to a satisfying homemade lunch is the ability to enjoy the food cold because that’s the way it is supposed to be eaten and not because it’s been six hours since you prepared it. Don’t get me wrong — there’s a special place in my heart for macaroni and congealed cheese. I ate it for 75% of my high school experience.
That being said, I totally understand why a salad piled with filling, intentionally cold ingredients might be more successful and appetizing. With no lettuce, this salad has the extra bonus of being dressed in advance to escape the inevitability of opened dressing containers spilling in your bag. You’re welcome.
Prepare the Edamame Salad
1. In a large bowl, mix all salad ingredients.
2. Whisk dressing together and pour on top, then toss it all together. Store in fridge.
