Quinoa Edamame Salad Recipe
Some weeknights I crave comfort food and others I am down for a nice fresh salad like this one. It has many crunchy veggies that make this dish delicious and colorful. I love Edamame and I love Quinoa, so why not marry them?
This Quinoa Edamame Salad Recipe feeds a crowd. I usually make it and store it in the fridge as a quick dinner or a side dish for lunch during the week. It’s also perfect for gatherings and potlucks especially if you’re watching your weight and trying to eat healthier.
I love how beautiful all the colors look together. It’s so fresh, crunchy and satisfying. I serve it with an Asian themed vinaigrette that’s mellow and meshes well with all the veggies.
You can customize this salad any way you would like to. Add nuts, cheeses and other kinds of veggies you may like or whatever’s in your fridge – perfect way to get rid of them!
This week as always has been very hectic. My grandparents came into town for 48 hours and I tried to spend as much time with them as possible, that meant doing homework with the girls in a hurry, canceling all their activities and pretty much dedicating my time to them.
They left yesterday and now I am trying to get done all my to-do’s in the remaining 2 days of the week. That means tons of recipes to make and tons of photo shoots while hanging out with the girls.
My husband is running the ING Miami Marathon this Sunday so I am hoping for a relaxing Friday and Saturday. That means that this salad has to last me throughout the whole weekend. Maybe I’ll add some chicken and turn it into an entree salad.
I really hope you can give this Quinoa Edamame Salad Recipe a try!

This looks delicious! I love salads that I can make in big batches and then eat throughout the week. I also love topping green salads with quinoa salads–makes me feel extra-virtuous. 🙂 Thanks for the inspiration!

This looks wonderful. I’m looking for more quinoa recipes, so I can’t wait to try this. (I’m thinking “1/2 Red Paper” is really 1/2 Red Pepper,yes?)
Thank you for the recipe!!
lol thanks so much Lori! I’ll change that right away!
Seriously! Why did I never think to add sesame oil before.? Thanks for the new twist on one of my regular salads.
Glad you like it Carol!
