Napa Cabbage Salad with Creamy Edamame Dressing (V, GF, Foodgasm)

This post is really all about the dressing. It is the most refreshing and delicious I have ever had. It is creamy and tangy...perfect balanced between acidity and sweetness. Give it a try!

Serves: 2 | Yields: 3 cups | Time: 15 minutes

1 head of Napa Cabbage
1 package Edamame, shelled (150g)*
1 can Sweet Corn (drain and reserve liquid)
1 tbs Apple Cider Vinegar
15g fresh Cilantro/Coriander
6 oz Water (liquid from corn)
50g Dulse or Sea Kelp flakes
1 tbs Nutritional Yeast flakes
1 tsp Onion Powder
1 tsp Paprika
Juice of 1 Lime
Juice of 1/2 Lemon
Optional: dash of coriander, cumin, cayenne, turmeric

* life is easier if you buy pre-shelled - salted or not is your choice

I followed the package directions and microwaved the edamame for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, chop your cabbage and fill two large bowls.
When the edamame is done, rinse with water to cool. Add everything except the cilantro and lemon juice to a blender or food processor. Puree.
Taste and add spices or salt if desired. Add in the cilantro and pulse a few times.
Pour half into each bowl. Toss with salad spoons and squeeze the lemon on top.
This salad was so simple and addictive. If you want to get fancy, try adding orange slices or pomegranate seeds. Enjoy :)
