Corn and Edamame Salad with Miso Tofu

Corn and Edamame Salad with Miso Tofu

Salads can get old, fast. Sure you can add croutons, and various nuts and fruits and vegetables… mix up the dressing on occasion, but it’s usually still just fancy lettuce.

But not this salad.

What a fresh, wonderful change of pace. So quick, so easy, and surprisingly refreshing. Colorful, healthy, and did I mention quick?

No recipe required for the tofu, really, just a quick marinate with some miso, soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger, garlic, and chili flakes.

No lettuce required.

Corn and Edamame Salad

Makes 2-4 servings. Recipe from Epicurious.


2 ears fresh corn, unhusked, or 1 1/4 cups cooked corn kernels
1/2 cup shelled edamame
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1/4 cup small-diced red bell pepper
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon light mayonnaise
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 1/2 teaspoons finely chopped or grated ginger
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


To grill:
Soak fresh corn in cold water about 30 minutes. Heat grill on high. Grill corn in husk, 10 to 15 minutes, turning once. Let cool. Remove husks. When cool enough to handle, cut corn from cob into a medium bowl and let cool.

To boil:
Remove husks and silk from corn. Carefully cut kernels off of cob. Boil kernels in salted water for 3 minutes or until tender. Drain and transfer to a medium bowl.

Combine corn with remaining ingredients. Cover and chill in refrigerator until ready to serve.

    Hey you two, this looks yummy! I was wondering what else to do with these corn cobs. I think maybe the salad would make a good topping for griddled polenta too?

    Which would you say is best for recipes, Bon Appetit or Gourmet (or something else like Cooks’ illustrated)? Would love your opinion as I am trying to decide which to put on my Christmas list. :) ~Anna X
