Edamame Salad with Bold Honey Mustard Dressing

Edamame Salad with Bold Honey Mustard Dressing

Edamame Salad with Bold Honey Mustard Dressing

After a week of vacation food, I was craving a pure and simple vegetarian salad. So the Produce Geek had perfect timing when he placed Romaine lettuce on his pick list this week! I paired it with some red leaf lettuce as the base, topped it with some other crispy veggies, added edamame for a protein boost and garnished with seedless green grapes (also featured on the Produce Geek’s blog this week). Served with my bold honey mustard dressing on the side, this salad will satisfy your voracious appetite and your taste buds.

To make this salad vegan-compatible, simply substitute a vegan alternative for my yogurt-based honey mustard dressing.  

Gluten-conscious? This salad is gluten-free! Just watch your choice of mustard & yogurt when making your dressing – read the labels to make sure neither contain gluten.
