Clean Eating Edamame Salad

READY IN: 2hrs 7mins
Recipe by KateL

Entered for safe-keeping. From Clean Eating, May/June 2009. This Japanese salad has a good proportion of protein to carbohydrates for a light lunch, but this will be more filling if served with brown rice. Nanami Togarashi can be found inthe Asian section of a supermarket or health food store, but red pepper flakes can be used as an emergency substitution.

Top Review by ForeverMama

The taste of the edamame is bright and flavorful. I enjoyed it tonight at dinner and will be having it for lunch tomorrow. Couldn't find the nanami togarashi anywhere and used red pepper flakes as KateL suggested. Also added a touch of wasabi powder. Made it for Photo Tag game. Thank you KateL for sharing and for keeping us healthy:)
