    • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
    • 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce (or tamari for gluten-free)
    • 1/2 tablespoon spicy chili and garlic sauce (see notes)
    • 1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger (or substitute about 1/3 teaspoon of ground ginger)


    Combine the cooked and cooled edamame in a large bowl with the carrots and cucumber.

    Recipe Notes

    The edamame for this recipe needs to be cooked and cooled, so please plan accordingly.

    You can sub about 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce and 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic for the chili garlic sauce if you prefer. You can adjust the amount of hot sauce to your spice level liking.

    You can also add chopped green onions or thinly sliced red onion to this salad if you prefer.

    This salad keeps for 2-3 days in a covered container in the refrigerator, but it will start to lose some crunch after the second day.
