As I was driving home from work the other day, I was thinking about the items I had in my fridge and what might make sense together. This edamame, avocado, radish, feta, salad is a nice departure from a plain a old salad with lettuce. The texture of edamame and avocado together with the crunch and peppery-ness of the radish and tangy-ness of the feta ended up blending extremely well. Plus, it is loaded with nutrients from all ingredients; Protein, omega-3's, fiber, the B's, zinc, C, and potassium to name a few. Great fuel post-workout!
Tip: Slice avocado in squares while it is still intact and then squeeze them out for perfect cubes.
Tip: Roll basil leaves together and then slice to make perfect little strips.
In a small bowl, mix extra virgin o/o, lemon juice, basil, radishes, avocado, edamame, and feta cheese.
To cook salmon (I love it best, broiled): Turn on your broiler and cook for 10 or so minutes (watch it) it should be golden on top and opaque all the way through. I mixed extra virgin o/o, parmesan and avocado together to make a paste then spread it over the top. Add your salad and enjoy.
