    Default Superfood Salad

    I was at Fred Meyer this past week and I went to the deli to get some
    sliced turkey and I saw this salad. It had a sign on it saying
    "superfood salad". It was really green and good looking so I bought
    a container and took it home.

    OMG. Love it. So I picked it apart and googled around and put
    together what should be
    the same thing. It's going to be a regular on my list of things to
    make.

    Kale - chopped really really really small (use lots, this salad is
    pretty green)
    shredded carrots - buy the little bag of organic shredded carrots
    red onion- very small dice
    grape tomatoes - bitty ones or larger one cut in half
    edamame (the only thing I was hesitant about)
    cashews
    dried cranberries
    fresh blueberries
    sunflower seeds

    raspberry vinaigrette

    Here is a twitter link with a picture from a different Fred Meyer
    store.

    It's really really really good. My only problem is the edamame. I
    don't do soy, generally and raw soybeans are really hard on your
    system. I've decided that baby lima beans will be the best
    substitute for the edamame. You can buy them frozen and just run them
    under warm water to thaw them out and throw them in the salad.

    I'm going grocery shopping tomorrow so I'm getting the stuff to make
    this. I'll let you know how they are in the final dish.

    If you are really going for healthy, buy a carrot and shred it
    yourself.

    Yeah, I know. But sometimes I'm lazy and those organic shredded
    carrots are soooooooo easy ;-)

    Is this superfood?

    I had it there and made it at home a few times.

    Very rich and delicious!

    Are lima beans a super food? I'm not aware of that one. I try to
    eat a large range of fruits and veggies every day. (Yes, if I
    were going REALLY low on crbs, I wouldn't be doing that. I don't
    eat the carbiest such things though.)

    You could add something that is yellow to that like yellow bell
    pepper.

    The original recipe I deconstructed used edamame. I don't do soy.
    BABY lima beans are nutritionally close to soy, the only real
    difference is that the limas are higher in carbohydrates. They are
    equal in protein. I used the frozen ones and just thawed them out
    and put them in the salad. They are really delicious in there.

    The yellow and red bell pepper is a good idea. Might add those next
    time.

    Okay. Got it. I was just curious because I am into phytonutrients.

    I try not to overconsume soy, and I pay attention to the form it
    is in and whether it is GMO. I probably should consume NONE, however.

    You are right.....especially for women, soy is iffy at best. I just
    try to make sure I don't eat ANY.

    I love tofu and eat it MUCH less than I want to. If I felt it was
    wise, I'd eat a lot more of it. I like soy milk (Asian; not the
    stuff that abounds at normal US grocery stores) but only drank it
    on extremely rare occasions. I REALLY try to avoid things that
    would provide a megadose of isoflavones.

    I served this over the Labor Day Weekend to guests and they RAVED
    about it and wanted the recipe. It is one of those things that the
    more you eat it the better it tastes and your body gets all happy and
    stuff.
