An easy 6-ingredient Edamame Corn Salad recipe with juicy tomatoes, fresh herbs, and a bright lemon dressing! Simple and nourishing. (Vegan, gluten-free, oil-free.)
This colorful edamame salad is only 6 simple ingredients!
It's so fresh and light, yet pleasantly filling from the plant-based protein and fiber.
Plus it's a great make-ahead recipe because the flavors slightly intensify as it chills.
So it's a great choice for take-along lunches, picnics, potlucks, meal prep, BBQs, gatherings, etc.
Seasonal eating: It's a great dish in summer with fresh corn and garden tomatoes. (But I also enjoy it year round thanks to organic frozen corn and flavorful grape/cherry tomatoes!)
Variations: Add a splash of red wine vinegar for extra tangy flavor. Or you can include your own favorite fresh herbs and veggies.
Avocado: Top with creamy avocado chunks right before serving. This is fantastic as well!
Garlic: If you like garlic, add a clove of finely minced garlic or some dried garlic powder.
Tip: Since this recipe is pretty simple, finding ripe, flavorful produce can make all the difference!

Wonderful to hear, Hank! Thanks so much for giving it a try and sharing your helpful feedback!
Amazing, thank you so much for this wonderful and quick meal.
Thrilled to hear you enjoyed. Thanks so much for the kind feedback!
So good and very healthy. Great for summer. Thanks!
Wonderful to hear!
I'm going to make this tomorrow-it doesn't mention if the corn is cooked? I was just going to make it with fresh uncooked-does it matter?
Hi Kris! I use cooked corn, sorry that was unclear. I'll be sure to update the recipe. Hope you enjoy!
It turned out excellently! I was pretty fast and loose with amounts, all were slightly approximate. More edamame, no onion and it turned out great!
Perfect! Fast and loose is my kind of summer cooking. Glad this worked out for you. Thanks so much for the kind feedback!
