Kanwal’s Healthy Corner – Edamame and Corn Salad

Edamame is a young soybean that is packed with fiber and protein! Not to mention, soybeans are low in calories and fat. These wonderful beans can be served steamed, still in their pods and sprinkled with salt or you can easily buy the frozen, shelled edamame and throw them in salads, soups and main dishes. I especially love edamame in the summertime when you crave clean, fresh salads. An edamame salad is also great to bring on picnics and you can easily dress them with vinaigrette. I thought, why not combine two summer favorites of edamame and corn and make an edamame and corn salad. Enjoy the recipe below for my simple Edamame and Corn Salad.


1c. of shelled edamame (I buy the frozen kind)
1 15oz. can of corn
1 red pepper, thinly sliced
1TB. of rice vinegar
1TB. of soy sauce
1tsp. of sesame oil
2tsp. of garlic powder
1TB. of freshly ground black pepper


Place all of the ingredients in a bowl and stir to combine. Let the flavors marinate with each other for at least an hour before serving.

Serves 1 generously, or 2 as a side.
