Recipe

Poppin’ Edamame Salad

After a few years in the classroom, I discovered that most kids will eat just about anything, including grains and vegetables, once it’s been drizzled with toasted sesame oil. This dish is high in protein and takes very little time to prepare. It can be served cold or at room temperature, which makes it convenient for lunch boxes.
