Summer Edamame Salad

This salad goes well with Mint Green Tea (1:1 ratio of mint tea to decaf green tea).

Layer on a large salad plate:

mixed greens
cooked rice, couscous, quinoa or other grains
mix of julienned carrots, apple, radish (I use an inexpensive mandolin grater, like this one.)
diced cucumber
diced tomato
diced Belgian endive
boiled and shelled edamame
seitan, veggie meat strips, or a veggie burger cut into bite-sized pieces
a few Greek olives
sunflower, alfalfa, daikon, or other sprouts
shelled pumpkin or sunflower seeds
cracked peper

Cover lightly with Ginger-Soy Dressing and serve.

Ginger-Soy Dressing
small piece of ginger, maybe small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, peeled.
small chunk of scallion, comparable to the size of the ginger
1 part lime juice
1 part low sodium soy sauce
1 part sesame oil
2 parts olive oil
2 part rice vinegar
Place all in a food processor and blend until smooth.
