I have become a big fan of Amazon Fresh.  Mainly because sometimes I forget ingredients or groceries and the last thing I want to do is leave the house to get them.  So the good people at Amazon deliver them for me.  Just like they deliver everything else!

While I was recently searching Amazon Fresh for groceries, I came across a prepared edamame salad.  The salad was made with roasted edamame, roasted red peppers, and carrots in a simple rice vinegar, soy sauce, and olive oil dressing.

It sounded really good, but I passed on adding the salad to my order.  Instead, I took a screenshot of the ingredients so I could make it myself.

We have a big bag of dry roasted edamame.  I like to grab a handful or two to snack on every now and then.  I’ll even toss them in a salad for a little extra crunch.  But up until recently, I realized that I could rehydrate them!  So that’s just what I did to make this salad.

When the edamame was ready to be used, I tossed it in a bowl with carrots, roasted red peppers, scallions, and garlic.  Then, I added a simple dressing made with olive oil, rice vinegar, soy sauce, and a pinch of sugar.  I finished the salad with a sprinkle of sesame seeds on top before serving.

If you’re looking for a healthy salad that also happens to be vegan, this edamame salad is easy to make, fresh and delicious! Instead of rehydrating dried edamame, you can use fresh or frozen shelled edamame instead. If using frozen, just make sure to thaw it before making this salad.

Since I used dried edamame, I had to rehydrate it.  To do this, I added the edamame to a bowl.  Then, I poured hot water over the edamame and let the edamame sit for an hour.  When the edamame was ready to use, I drained the bowl.

Then, I started preparing the rest of my ingredients.  I added carrots, roasted red peppers, scallions, and garlic to a mixing bowl along with the edamame.

With my salad made, I whipped up a simple dressing made with olive oil, rice vinegar, soy sauce, and just a pinch of sugar.  I poured it over the salad and mixed.

My measurements made a lot of dressing, but I’m okay with that.  You could make the dressing and use as much or as little as you’d like.

Once the salad was ready to serve, I sprinkled some sesame seeds on top and dug in!
