Edamame-Tomato Salad with Lime-Balsamic Dressing


October 10, 2011 by Dana

Before I give you the recipe for this (very tasty) Edamame-Tomato Salad with Lime-Balsamic Dressing, I want to tug on your heartstrings a little ask for your help.

First, a little background:  When I made my 27×27 list, almost 6 months ago, I included a goal to participate in an event for a cause.  at the time, I figured that I would pick a random event, raise a few dollars for the cause, and call it a day.

Little did I know, my 5 1/2 year old cousin, Steven, would be diagnosed with Leukemia just a few months later.  And that instead of choosing a random event and cause to participate in, I would be walking on Team Steven in The Light The Night Walk  to support the The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s efforts to find cures for blood cancers.

So I’m asking for your help.  Please help me support Steven and his family by donating to my fundraising page.  Because by donating even just a few dollars to what may just be a random cause to you, has the power to give a little 5 1/2 year old boy and his family hope.

And now, on to lighter things.  Like this Edamame-Tomato Salad with Lime-Balsamic Dressing.  Which is not only light, healthy, and protein packed, but also very tasty and satisfying.

This recipe, my pick for this month’s Secret Recipe Club, comes from Cooking with Chopin, Living with Elmo.  Ginny created this dish in honor of summer, which is something I can totally get on board with.  Summer is most definitely my favorite season, and I’m sad to see it go.  And if making this tasty salad prolongs the summer just a little more, then how would I not love it?

Edamame-Tomato Salad with Lime-Balsamic Dressing


1 (10 oz.) frozen bag of shelled edamame, cooked according to package directions (about 2 cups)
1/2 cup (approx.) yellow cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 cup grape tomatoes, halved
1/2 cup finely diced red onion
2 leaves fresh basil, cut away from center stem and chopped
Juice of 1/2 lime (about 2 teaspoons)
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


In a medium bowl, combine first five ingredients.  Whisk together the lime juice, salt, and balsamic vinegar.  Pour lime-balsamic dressing over edamame mixture.  Season with additional salt and black pepper, if desired.
