Edamame, Tomato, Corn Salad with Lemony Dressing

Easy 6-ingredient Edamame Salad with juicy tomatoes, sweet corn, fresh herbs, and a bright lemony dressing! So simple and so good! Vegan, gluten-free, oil-free.



Only 6 simple ingredients needed to make this colorful edamame salad! It's so fresh and light, yet pleasantly filling. Hearty edamame, juicy tomatoes, sweet corn, onions, and herbs tossed with a bright lemony dressing - all the textures and flavors play so nice 😊 It's an awesome dish in the summer (think fresh corn and garden tomatoes!) but I love it year round thanks to organic frozen corn and available sweet grape/cherry tomatoes. Be sure to find organic produce (especially edamame and corn) if possible. It's such a fun and versatile recipe - check my notes below for variations!

    1. Hi! There should be a "Share" button at the bottom of the recipe (right above this comment section.)
      On mobile, it appears as a blue "Share" button, then you can select email.
      If you're using a desktop browser, it's the tiny envelope with an arrow on it (in the light gray box above this comment section). Hope that helps! :)
