Thai Chopped Salad

Michelle Alley

TOTAL TIME:15 min

Salads sometimes get a bad rap for being boring—and they can be if you aren’t doing anything exciting with those leafy greens. This salad is far from boring. It’s chock-full of delicious Thai flavor, along with some tasty edamame for added protein. We included a salad dressing recipe, since homemade versions typically have less fat and calories than store bought. This salad also makes a delicious wrap if you’re looking for a quick, utensil-free meal when you’re on the go.

          Directions
          1. First, purée all the ingredients for the dressing. (This can be done in a blender or a food processor.)
          2. Once smooth, set aside.
          3. Cook edamame according to package directions. I like to microwave mine for quick cooking.
          4. Place all ingredients for the salad in a large bowl.
          5. Toss with the dressing. (If you aren’t planning to consume it immediately, refrigerate with the dressing separate, then toss with dressing prior to serving.)
