Details about storage:

Edamame salad keeps well in storage. It can be kept chilled for up to three days in a sealed container. It’s normal for salads to naturally lose some of their saltiness when refrigerated, so feel free to add a dash of salt or olive oil to revive the flavours over time.

Cooking the edamame

Cooking the edamame is the only step in this recipe, regardless of technique! To prepare it for the salad, you’ll need to both thaw it and cook it little. It arrives frozen. Don’t go overboard, though, as it will lose its appealing colour and turn greenish brown! Here are some pointers for preparing edamame:

  • First, rinse it: Put the frozen edamame in a sieve with warm water, then shake off any extra moisture. This aids in defrosting the frozen veggie so that less heat is used.
  • Cook for two minutes, but not for too long: Fill a big skillet with olive oil and place it over medium-high heat. Add the edamame and salt and cook for 2 minutes until warmed through but still bright green. Don’t overcook it, or the edamame will turn greenish-brown.
  • The finest part is about to happen: take it off the fire and mix in the grated garlic. Stir thoroughly until thoroughly combined, since grated garlic tends to group together.
  • All you have to do is combine the cooked edamame with the veggies and vinaigrette. Completed!
