Spa Cuisine: South Beach Diet Edamame Salad

Spa Cuisine:  South Beach Diet Edamame Salad

For a high-protein salad, this is delicious.

Edamame are vibrant, tasty green soybeans in the shells, and are readily available in most frozen sections of supermarkets and health food stores. This salad has a whopping 15 grams of protein to 18 grams of carbs – an unusual ratio. If edamame is not readily available, you can substitute chick peas.


1 bag (16 ounces) frozen shelled edamame (green soybeans)
1/4 cup seasoned rice vinegar
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 bunch radishes (8 ounces), cut in half and thinly sliced
1 cup loosely packed chopped fresh cilantro leaves

Toss the edamame, vinegar, oil, salt, pepper, radishes, and cilantro together in a large bowl.

Serve chilled or at room temperature.

Serves 4.
