This bright, crunchy salad, which comes together in just 20 minutes, pairs loads of fresh vegetables with delicious, protein-rich edamame. It also features red cabbage, carrots, yellow peppers, and serrano chiles. In order to keep the vegetables crisp, you should dress the salad just before serving. To cut down the spice, feel free to use only one serrano pepper, or you can opt to leave them out entirely. Also, you can look out for preshredded cabbage and carrots in your produce section to speed prep time. If you want to turn this salad into a vegetarian main meal, you can add some tofu or tempeh.
