1cupfrozen shelled edamamethawed
1ripe avocadopeeled and pitted
2teaspoonsfresh lime juice
1/4cupchopped fresh cilantro
Garlic chile pasteto taste (I use 1/8 teaspoon)
Salt and pepperto taste
Bread slicesI use Sesame Seed or Whole Wheat Bread
Cucumber slicesfor serving, optional
1. Place edamame in a food processor or blender. Pulse a few times to chop up the edamame, you don't want a puree. Scrape the edamame into a medium bowl. Add the avocado and mash the edamame and avocado together with a fork.
2. Add in the garlic, green onions, rice vinegar, lime juice, cilantro, wasabi, and garlic chile paste. Stir until well combined. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Place salad filling on bread slices and top with cucumber slices. Serve.
Note-The salad is best eaten the day it is made. The salad filling can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 2 days, but it might turn slightly brown due to the avocado. Save the avocado pit and place it in the middle of the salad or add a little extra lime juice to prevent browning.
