Nori Edamame Salad With Ginger-Miso Dressing


I was inspired by the "The Plant Based Dietician" and her post for Nori Edamame Salad with Miso Sauce. I love Nori so I decided to create this beautiful salad.  I used bell peppers instead of cucumbers because I had forgotten to buy a cucumber.  Also, I think I went a little crazy with the Nori.  If you watch Julieanna's video, she didn't use as much as I did.  I also cut up little thin pieces of Nori and decorated the top of the salad. This was a really tasty dinner. She didn't include a specific sauce, but suggested some kind of miso dressing. You can buy one from your Health Food Store or make the Ginger-Miso dressing I have included.  Below is the recipe and ingredients I used.  Watch the video above with Julieanna ~The Plant Based Dietician" to help see how to assemble the salad. 
This was so quick and easy.  I also liked that I had virtually no mess in my kitchen to clean up.  YEAH!!
