Orange and Edamame Salad

Wow! I never dreamed I’d have such a huge response to my request for salad ideas. I made up a list and went to the grocery store this morning and bought four different kinds of lettuce (plus cabbage), four kinds of fruit (five if you count avocado), and several vegetables that I didn’t have on hand. I have so many ideas for salads floating around in my head that I didn’t know where to start, so I started simple, with one that didn’t involve pre-roasting or cooking anything. After spending all morning at the grocery store, I didn’t have much time to throw together this lunch salad!

So this one’s not unusual. In fact, the only unusual ingredient to me was the snow peas, which it turns out that I don’t really like raw. So the next time I make this, I’ll go back to my usual bean sprouts, but for those of you who like snow peas, this one’s for you.

(By the way, what you see in the photo was just the “camera ready” salad. I ate it and a huge, less photogenic version right out of the family salad bowl. Those of you who follow Eat to Live know that it takes a lot of salad to make up the one pound per day that Dr. Fuhrman advises.)

Thanks for all the ideas, and keep ’em coming!

I love, love, love this salad! I’ve had it so much that I ran out of edamame and red peppers (never had the peas in it). So, tonight I added a little broccoli slaw for crunch and rehydrated dried apricots along with the orange segments. Thanks Susan!

Thank you Susan. I have recently decided to go vegan and have been eating this way for the past week. I also like to have fun in the kitchen and experiment with new recipes. On top of going vegan, I have some pounds to drop so for me, your blog is a treasure box.
