Edamame Salad

For vegetarians, the good source of protein is from legumes or beans that we eat. Edamame is one good source of protein. These are young soy beans that look green in colour and taste good. I came up with a salad that tasted excellent and I may want to do this as when I get time or whenever I crave for some snack.

Here is the recipe:

1 cup frozen edamame (thawed)
1/2 cucumber thinly sliced
1 carrot thinly sliced
1 ripe roma tomato thinly sliced
2 tbsp cilantro finely chopped
Salt as per taste

For Dressing:

1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp rice vinegar
2 tsp EVOO
a pinch of pepper powder

Put all the ingredients for salad in a bowl. Whisk all the ingredients for dressing together and pour over the salad.

Thats it, easy to make and a healthy snack is ready to be enjoyed.
