"Eat My Mommy!"

When Molly was a little squirt, she called edamame, "eat my mommy". Adorable and charming mispronunication, but sometimes I wondered....? I mean she's cute and all, but once she kept ants in a little wrist purse on her tiny little arm and when they would eventually die, she would just leave them in there. Quite the collection.

Anyway, I just read a wonderful recipe in Sunset, submitted by an equally wonderful cook, Roxanne Chan. She is not only a prolific and amazing cook, she is most gracious. There couldn't be a better representation of someone doing what they love with talent and style but also with quiet and humble dignity. I admire what she has done very much. And I LOVE this recipe! She was, of course, gracious enough to let me post this, so thank you Roxanne!

Roxanne Chan's Edamame Salad

Serves 8

Prep time: 20 minutes

2 tbsp. sesame oil

1 tbsp. rice vinegar

2 tsp soy sauce

1/2 tsp. Asian chili garlic sauce

1 lb. shelled edamame, cooked and cooled

2 green onions, thinly sliced

1/4 cup chopped mint

1/4 cup sliced almonds

In a small bowl, whisk together sesame oil, rice vinegar, soy sauce, and chili sauce. Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine edamame, green onions, mint, and almonds. Toss with the dressing to coat.

Serve, and "eat your mommy"!
