Vegan Edamame Rice Salad Recipe

This One Ingredient Will Really Amp Up a Vegan Rice Salad

Whether attempting to throw together lunch or cooking for a crowd, I try to always sway toward simple, straightforward recipes, and this edamame rice salad is an ideal example of that. Since it's vegan, the edamame rice salad can be left out at room temperature for several hours. It's about as hands-off and unfussy as they come.

The most exotic (and notable) ingredient is the sesame dressing, but it's the secret weapon, so don't replace it! The toasted fragrance is unbeatable, and you may hear some of your friends begging to know what makes this salad so special. I leave it up to you to reveal the secret or keep it to yourself!
