Edamame, Quinoa, and Shiitake Mushroom Salad

Edamame, Quinoa, and Shiitake Mushroom Salad

The combination of lime juice, soy sauce, and honey creates a flavor similar to that of teriyaki; Thai Sriracha sauce adds a hint of heat to balance the sweetness.

  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 2 cups frozen shelled edamame (green soybeans)
  • 1 cup chopped shiitake mushroom caps
  • 1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper


Combine first 6 ingredients in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk; set aside.
