Healthy and fresh, we're making Bal Areneson's Avocado and Edamame Salad in the month of May. This salad is filled with exotic flavours and steps away from your regular generic salad, sorry lettuce. 

Avocado and Edamame Salad 

 Ingredients - yield 4

  • tablespoons sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil, chopped
  • tablespoons oil from sun-dried tomatoes
  • tablespoon of Spanish paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • green onions, finely chopped (1/4 cup)
  • cup edamame beans, cooked
  • cups bean sprouts, loosely packed
  • avocados, peeled, pitted and sliced
  • tablespoons lime juice


  1. Combine the sun-dried tomatoes, oil, cumin, green onions, salt, paprika and lime juice in the bottom of a salad bowl and mix well. Add the avocados, bean sprouts, and edamame beans and toss well before serving. Allow to marinate.
  2. Note: How to cook edamame beans: Put 1 cup of fresh or frozen edamame beans along with 2 cups of water into a saucepan and bring to a boil. Turn the heat to low and cook for 3 to 5 minutes. Strain the water and run the beans under cold water to cool.
