Orange Edamame Salad

Yield:
4-6 servings


It’s one of my favorite times of the year – citrus season! I look forward each year when fresh oranges, grapefruits and lemons abound. This salad actually came about last year when I was pregnant with my daughter, and I constantly craved citrus fruit!. The funniest part about my citrus craving was that suddenly I was eating an entire grapefruit every day, even though I had never eaten grapefruit before in my life.

Pregnant or not, I love this Orange Edamame Salad, which can be served as a side dish, dairy, pareve or even as an entree. And as for the edamame, I highly recommend using the shelled, frozen edamame from Trader Joe’s – so easy!

My last recommendation – if you choose to grill some salmon or chicken for a salad entree, you can double the salad dressing recipe (below) and use it as a marinade! Not only will it make your prep a snap, but the it will intensify the flavor.

VARIATIONS

For a dairy salad: Add one cup crumbled goat cheese on top of salad.

For a dairy entree: Add one cup crumbed goat cheese and grilled salmon or tofu on top of salad.

For a meat entree: Add several slices of grilled chicken on top of salad.

Winter Citrus Salads

Winter may not seem like the ideal time to experiment with salads, but with all the different varieties of citrus fruit that are in season currently, its a great time get ready to peel! Not to mention, a little bit of citrus may be just what you need to help get over the winter blues.

My new favorite citrus inspired salad is easy to make, and super flavorful! I use blood oranges, pink grapefruit, cucumber, avocado and edamame in my Winter Citrus Edamame Salad.

A great flavor pairing is fennel and citrus, and if that gets you excited, try this Winter Citrus Salad featuring fennel, citrus, goat cheese and olives.

Looking for a salad that can serve as more of a meal? Try this Winter Chicken Salad with Citrus and Celery. (Leave off the cheese!)

I love this lettuce-free version of a Winter Citrus Salad from the Culinary Enthusiast which uses not only grapefruit, blood oranges and clementines, but also pomegranate seeds!

And if you’re looking to drink your citrus, not eat it, well forget the salad – try this Blood Orange Margarita, which is one of my favorite combinations of flavors.
