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!
