How to make Healthy Cauliflower and Edamame Salad

Cauliflower-Edamame-Salad-served

Chop the cauliflower into bite-sized florets, discarding the leaves and tough stem. There are two ways to cook the cauliflower, pick the one that works for you.

My Super Easy way:

Place bite-sized cauliflower florets in a large Glass bowl, add ½ a Cup or 1 cup of water, doesn’t really matter since you will drain it later. Microwave on Hi for about 3 min. Check for doneness. You may like it more or less crispy.

Stovetop option:

Bring water to boil and a bit of salt in a pot. Add cauliflower and cook until just tender or desired consistency, about 5 to 7 minutes. Drain into a colander and let cool.

Use the same methods to cook your Frozen Edamame.

Notes:

You can use Any veggies and herbs you have on hand. I used half of the Edamame package, but you can use all, if desired.

Adjust the taste: you may want more mayo or more mustard. Or just skip mayo and just add more yogurt. It’s all up to you!
