A refreshing lunch or dinner with this Asian Chicken Salad topped with Edamame. This post is sponsored by Soyfoods Association of North America in conjunction with Blog Meets Brand and I have been compensated for my participation. All opinions are my own.
Did you know that this month is National Soyfoods Month? It sure is, so I felt the need to celebrate with this salad. My favorite soy product is Edamame. I literally could eat it all day! That’s probably a good thing then that it’s so good for you too, right?
Lunch time is always a challenge in our household, I typically work during lunch at my desk. Of course, I work at home, so I’m near a kitchen that is fully stocked; however, every minute counts for me during the hours of 10-2. Those are my hours at home without the kids that I can really knock my work out.
I try to get as much done during that time because I really am not a huge fan of working all evening after the kids go to bed. So, I plan ahead lunch that way I can quickly grab lunch and eat while working. I guess that’s the workaholic in me.
This salad was just the thing to pick me up during the day. It’s also great to make in a mason jar and take to work too. My husband likes to take these to work because with mason jars the dressing can go on the bottom and avoid making the lettuce soggy.
I decided to use home grown lettuce for this salad along with tomatoes, grilled chicken, chow mein noodles, peanuts, and of course edamame. We topped it with a Toasted Sesame dressing.
It was absolutely perfect for lunch or dinner and so light and fresh!
What types of soy foods do you enjoy? I love adding soy foods to our menu because they are heart-healthy and plant powered!
