Broccoli Edamame Salad with Peanut Sauce
Fresh bright broccoli, protein-packed edamame, crunchy peanuts, and just 15 minutes is all it takes to make this Broccoli Edamame Salad with Peanut Sauce.
Heat a large pot of water and bring it to a boil. Add the broccoli florets and boil for approximately 1-2 minutes (do not over-boil!) Carefully drain boiling water and transfer broccoli to a large bowl of ice water to stop cooking. Once cooled completely, drain and set aside in a large bowl.
To the bowl of broccoli, add the edamame, green onion, peanuts, and cilantro. Mix well and set aside.
To make the peanut sauce whisk all ingredients together until fully combined. If dressing is too thick, whisk in more hot water one teaspoon at a time until you reach the desired consistency (I find that thicker is a little better).
Toss with broccoli salad until everything is completely coated. Add salt and pepper to taste and garnish with white and black sesame seeds, if desired.
