  • Place cooked quinoa, edamame, bell pepper, cucumber, carrot, green onion, cranberries in a large mixing bowl. Add 1/2 cup of the dressing and mix until well combined; save any remaining dressing for another use. Place in the refrigerator until chilled, at least 1 hour.

  • Garnished with slivered almonds to serve.

Cook's Note:

I've been guilty of making this last minute and serving it immediately without chilling. It is still amazing!

I followed the recipe (always try to do the first time) and it was excellent. Nice blend of flavors. Next time I might add a bit more lemon but great as is. "Salt to taste" for me was almost a teaspoon. Thanks for sharing! Read More

The dressing is truly delicious. I added a little ginger to it. The texture of quinoa and edamame and cucumber are a delight in the mouth. This is a keeper. Read More
