Avocado and Edamame Salad

For original post scroll to bottom of this post.

I love to pair radishes with green onions. Mostly I just love the way they look together.
This edamame salad also has chopped parsley, ripe avocado, a garlic and ginger dressing, and sesame seeds.

Avocado and Edamame Salad
serves 4 large or 6 small servings
Print this Recipe!
1 16-ounce bag frozen shelled edamame, thawed
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
2 teaspoons honey
scant 1/4 cup seasoned rice wine vinegar
3 tablespoons olive oil
juice of 1 lime
pinch of salt and fresh cracked pepper
1/2 cup sliced green onion
3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
5 to 8 radishes, sliced
1 ripe avocado, sliced
sesame seeds
Bring about 4 cups of water to boil in a medium saucepan. Add edamame and boil for just a few minutes, until cooked through but still with a slight bite to them. Drain and allow to cool.
In the meantime, make the dressing.
In a small bowl, whisk together rice wine vinegar, oil, garlic, ginger, lime, and salt and pepper. Whisk together until completely incorporated. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, combine cooled edamame, green onion, parsley, radishes, and a sprinkling of sesame seeds. Toss together. Add dressing to desired amount. It’s that easy!
Salad lasts up to 4 days in the fridge, but be warned, the radishes will start the loose their red color… just so you know.

Autumn Chopped Salad

Photo Courtesy of Richard Swearinger, BHG Food Editor Extraordinaire

For original post- scroll to bottom of this post

Autumn Chopped Salad
(Printable Recipe)

*6 to 8 cups chopped romaine lettuce
*2 medium pears, chopped
*1 cup dried cranberries
*1 cup chopped pecans
*8 slices thick-cut bacon, crisp-cooked and crumbled
*4 to 6 oz. feta cheese, crumbled
*Poppy seed Salad Dressing (I like T. Marzetti)
*Balsamic Vinaigrette (I like Newman's Own Light Balsamic Vinaigrette)

*On a large platter, combine the lettuce, pears, cranberries, pecans, bacon and feta cheese. Drizzle generously with poppy seed dressing, followed by some of the balsamic vinaigrette. (I would estimate that I used about a cup of dressing: 70 percent poppy seed dressing and 30 percent balsamic vinaigrette) If you prefer your salad to have more dressing, feel free to experiment with the combination.

Happy Cooking!
