“This recipe is easy and healthy, a good side dish or a main course for lunch. Vegetarian. Inspired by an edamame salad in the salad bar at my grocery store. It looked but didn't taste good, so I decided to make one that did.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Use unsalted ingredients when possible, otherwise, rinse well to get rid of excess salt.
  2. Put edamame in microwave-safe covered dish (I use pyrex glass 2 QT dish), add a few tablespoons of water, cook for 4 mins or as per directions.
  3. Cut up red pepper into small cubes, set aside.
  4. Pour cooked edamame and can of corn into colander, rinse with cold water to chill, shake off excess water, and pour into serving dish (I use same glass dish).
  5. Empty cans of beans into colander, rinse well with cold water until it runs clear and shake off excess water.
  6. Pour beans into dish with edamame and corn.
  7. Add cut red pepper to dish.
  8. Add fresh dill to taste (I cut up with scissors).
  9. Add lime juice and Italian dressing, reduce dressing to cut back on salt, fat.
  10. Season to taste with ground pepper.
  11. Optional: Add a chopped avocado for a richer-tasting dish.
  12. Serve immediately or even better, chill before serving.
