Edamame Noodle Salad

Edamame Noodle Salad

This Edamame Noodle Salad is so bright and fresh tasting. The dressing is flavored from a combination of fresh tangelo juice and the zest of a whole tangelo (you can use a tangerine or half of an orange) plus soy sauce.

Making this salad is astonishingly simple, and it keeps well in the refrigerator for a couple of days. I used angel hair pasta for the noodles, but you can use any noodles that you prefer.

Where I live, I can easily find fresh cooked edamame in my local grocery store. If fresh is not readily available, US readers can usually find it frozen at Costco or Trader Joe's.

  3. Beautiful dish Karen! We also just learned that there's a fruit called tangelo:) We 'll go ahead and use orange as we don't have 'em here, perhaps adding a few drops of clementine for the aroma.
    Thank you for sharing!

  5. We love edamame in our house and this dish looks like a delicious way to break out of my usual habit of just steaming and serving it as is! Thanks for sharing it!
