Tips

Look for soybeans (edamame) in the freezer section of the grocery store. It may be with regular frozen vegetables or in the organic section.  Edamame should be cooked according to the package instructions before adding to a dish.

When using apples that are in season, which are usually very juicy, you may want to squeeze some of the juice out of the apples after grating.

For a sweeter hint to this salad, drizzle in a bit more honey.

For a richer salad, add a drizzle of olive oil.
