This Thai Salad Makes Getting More Veggies Delicious

Unfortunately, being a dietitian does not inherently cause you to crave lettuce. But every now and then you come across a salad recipe so good it makes eating lettuce downright enjoyable. This is one of those recipes!

You can add to this recipe with some lean meat, such as chicken breast or shrimp, or just enjoy it as it is. It’s a great change-of-pace meal that still offers protein, thanks to the edamame, which can pack 17 grams of protein in a single cup.

Thai Salad

  • 1 16-ounce bag of frozen shelled edamame, cooked
  • 5-6 cups of combination greens, such as 3-4 cups romaine lettuce and 2-3 cups cabbage

  • 1 yellow pepper, chopped
  • 1 cup cilantro leaves, chopped
