Edamame + Avocado + Radish Salad

I came across this recipe on Pinterest awhile back and knew I had to make it!  It was so light and refreshing.  It would be perfect for a Summer Dinner or Picnic Party.  I will say it was best the first day I made it, it was not as good the next day mainly because the radishes got a bit soft and the avocado starts to go bad, so I recommend eating it the first day if possible. The flavors in the dressing were amazing- the ginger paired with garlic, honey, and fresh lime juice were just delicious.  Best part this is a super healthy salad no cheese or anything bad just all fresh ingredients so you can eat it guilt free!

Serves 4 large or 6 small servings

1 16-ounce bag frozen shelled edamame, thawed
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
2 teaspoons honey
Scant 1/4 cup seasoned rice wine vinegar
3 tablespoons olive oil
Juice of 1 lime
Pinch of salt and fresh cracked pepper
1/2 cup sliced green onion(about 4 onions)
3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  8 radishes, sliced
1 ripe avocado, sliced

Bring about four cups of water to boil in a medium saucepan. Add edamame and boil for just a few minutes, until cooked through but still with a slight bite to them. Drain and allow to cool.

In the meantime, make the dressing.

In a small bowl, whisk together rice wine vinegar, oil, garlic, ginger, lime, honey, and salt and pepper. Whisk together until completely incorporated. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine cooled edamame, green onion, parsley, radishes, and a sprinkling of sesame seeds. Toss together. Add dressing to desired amount. It’s that easy!

I don't think I've ever had radishes either! But I think I'm going to try this because I like the other two ingredients and I'm always looking for a new side to try.
