This refreshing and fresh salad with carrots, cabbage and edamame is the perfect spring or summer side dish!



  • 1/2 head of red cabbage
  • 2 large carrots
  • 1 c shelled edamame
  • 1/4 c olive oil
  • 1/4 c cilantro, diced
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 heaping tsp ginger, minced
  • juice of 1 lime
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 tsp salt


Slice 1/2 of a head of red cabbage as thinly as you can. Place in a large mixing bowl.

Peel the outside of the carrots off with a vegetable peeler and throw away. Create thin strips of carrots with the vegetable peeler and place in the large mixing bowl.

Add edamame, cilantro, green onion, and ginger to large mixing bowl and toss together.

Drizzle olive oil, lemon juice, lime juice, honey and salt over the salad. Toss together and serve!


If you do not have a vegetable peeler, you can thinly slice the carrots with your knife. However, using the peeler will give you a thinner slice of carrots.

This recipe can be very easily doubled or tripled.
