Fill 'er Up Salad
Serves 2 stahhvin’ people.
I usually call this the “Clean Out the Fridge Dinner Salad”, but I’m going with an inside joke that only 3 people will get—because that’s what I do. My awesome friend Megan asked me about making a salad that’s filling, but not full of high calorie items. This is what I had for dinner last night.
1 C shelled edamame
½ lb green beans, trimmed
4 oz Greens (Kale, Arugula, Spinach or a mix)
1 C shredded carrots
2 apples, cored, medium dice
4 ribs celery, chopped
Bring 8 cups of salted water (salty like ocean water in your mouth at the beach) to the boil.
Fill a large bowl with ice cold water.
Boil the edamame for 4 minutes, then transfer to the cold water bowl.
Boil the green beans for 2 minutes, then transfer to the cold water bowl.
