Prep Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
Course: Main Dishes, Side Dish
Cuisine: American
Servings: 4 salads
Edamame beans, sugar snap peas, radishes and carrot are mixed together with an easy sesame dressing.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups frozen edamame beans (frozen green soybeans) cooked according to package instructions
  • 8 oz sugar snap peas ends trimmed
  • 3 small red radishes thinly sliced
  • 1/2 a watermelon radish thinly sliced and then cut each slice into quarters (to resembles triangle slices of watermelon)
  • 1 small carrot thinly sliced and cut into small strips
  • 1/2 tbsp toasted sesame seeds

For the Sesame Dressing

  • 1/3 cup seasoned rice vinegar see note
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard

Directions:

  1. In a small bowl, add all sesame dressing ingredients. Whisk vigorously until completely mixed and uniform.
  2. In a separate small bowl, add the radishes. Add a few tablespoons of dressing until radishes are just covered, so that they soak in the dressing for a few minutes.
  3. Blanch sugar snap peas for about 1-2 minutes (until they are just turning tender but still very crisp) and then immediately place into an ice bath. Slice sugar snap peas diagonally. I sliced smaller ones in two and longer ones into thirds.
  4. Add sugar snap peas, edamame, carrots, radishes (removed from dressing) into a large salad bowl. Pour dressing on top. You may not need all of the dressing. I recommend starting with half, toss it into the salad, and then add more as needed. I had about 1/4 left over when I was done.

Notes:

Seasoned rice vinegar is light brown in color and has a more mellow and sweeter flavor than regular rice vinegar. If you only have regular rice vinegar I suggest you reduce the quantity used.
