Edamame Salad with Sesame Ginger Dressing

This bright baby kale salad is packed with a little bit of everything: hearty greens, a nutty crunch, a zip of citrusy goodness and a big protein punch. It's pure bliss in a bowl. —Darla Andrews, Schertz, Texas

Test Kitchen tips
  • Edamame is the Japanese name for immature or green soybeans which are then steamed or boiled. They’re available shelled or still in their pods in the frozen vegetable section.
  • Green onions, also called scallions, are the immature form of onions before the bulb has grown.
  • Cutting green onions thinly on the diagonal is a great way to give them a delicate look, especially in Asian dishes.
  • Unlike tangerines, clementines are almost always seedless. If they’re not available, use a navel orange.

  • Health Tip: Vitamin C-rich clementines help your body absorb iron from plant sources like the kale and edamame in this salad.

      Thanks! It's very helpful. I stress on the point that when on a new diet, a daily plan is very important Without it it’s too easy to fall for peer pressure, to be unprepared and to make bad decisions. I was one among those people who had knowledge about what to eat and what not to, but didn't have a daily plan to carry me through that critical first month until I came across something called as 28-Day Keto challenge. It's more than a plan, a challenge which guided me every step of my way. Their guidance helped me a lot and now I feel a sense of accomplishment. I notice my skin and hair improve and even can sleep better now. I lost a lot of weight too and I now have that energy which I haven't felt in years. I very strongly recommend you this. Visit

      This was not too good; it seems like these ingredients are not meant to go together,
