Simplicity

Sunday, March 5, 2017
This recipe, and its photos, have been sitting in my files forever, waiting to be posted. I'm not sure why, other than it never seemed like much of a recipe. There are 7 ingredients and two sentences, which basically amount to, "Mix everything together and serve."

That's just part of what makes it so perfect. It doesn't hurt that two of the three salad components are taken from the freezer, and the dressing is made from pantry staples. It also doesn't hurt that the flavour is surprisingly complex, and a great side dish for grilled meat.

I think I just talked myself into posting it.


Edamame, Red Pepper and Corn Salad

Ingredients:

2 tsp sodium-reduced soy sauce
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp liquid honey
1 clove garlic, minced
1 cup frozen edamame, thawed, drained and patted dry
1/2 cup frozen corn kernels, thawed, drained and patted dry
1 cup diced sweet red pepper

In bowl, whisk together soy sauce, sesame oil, honey and garlic until blended. Stir in edamame, red pepper and corn.

Gorgeous colors--so welcome at this time of the year! We get tons of edamame from the CSA in the summer, so I am going to have to save this!

I have never had edamame, it is not something I can buy around here, but I would love to try them someday. This salad looks delicious, maybe I should try to substitute the edamame.

I really like edamame in salads. And this is so pretty! Really tasty, too, I'll bet. :-) Thanks!
