Are you eating your daily requirement of vegetables?
A healthy quantity for you is based on your age and gender. Women generally need about 2½ cups of vegetables daily, men about 3 cups, and children 2-3 cups.
And a good way to start is with a generous — and healthy — serving of a cup or more of this salad, good any time of year!
You’ll find edamame — whole soy beans without the pod — in the frozen food section.
And while seedless hot house English cukes are the best in this salad, any sort will do.
