Seaweed asserts its umami magic in this beautiful noodle-edamame salad recipe, which is perfect for a summer evening. Several types of dried seaweed are available in natural-foods markets—arame and dulse (sometimes called “sea vegetables”) are two of the most common. Snipped pieces of nori (the seaweed used for sushi rolls) would work too.

Prep: 40 minutes | Total Time: 40 minutes
  • 1 10- to 12-ounce package
    frozen shelled edamame
  • 8 ounces
    thin rice noodles, or rice sticks (see Tip)
  • 1 cup
    arame, or dulse seaweed
  • 3/4 cup
    rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons
    canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons
  • 1/2 teaspoon
  • 1 cup
    shredded carrot
  • medium red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup
    thinly sliced red onion
  • 1/4 cup
    chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 cup
    lightly salted peanuts, chopped, divided
  1. Cook edamame according to package directions. Drain and rinse with cold water. Soften or cook noodles according to package directions. Drain, transfer to a work surface and chop twice. If using arame, cook according to package directions “for salads”; if using dulse, snip into bite-size pieces, but do not cook.
  2. Whisk vinegar, oil, sugar and salt in a large bowl. Add the edamame, rice noodles, seaweed, carrot, bell pepper, onion, cilantro and 1/4 cup peanuts; toss well to combine. Serve sprinkled with the remaining peanuts.



Tip: Dried thin rice noodles (or rice sticks) are also called “mai fun,” “bun” or “vermicelli-style” rice noodles. Look for them in the Asian section of well-stocked supermarkets or an Asian-foods market.
