This refreshing salad features gluten-free edamame noodles and a variety of colorful, crunchy veggies. To cut down on prep time, pick up a bag of mixed shredded carrots and cabbage in the produce section of your supermarket. Not familiar with jicama? It’s a crunchy, mild-mannered non-starchy veggie that’s delicious raw or cooked. Use it as a dipper for guacamole, or shred it for slaw. To prep it, simply trim the ends off with a sharp chef’s knife, then cut away the tough, fibrous peel.
