Sushi Roll Edamame Salad

sushi roll edamame salad

You guys! I’m going through some SERIOUS Oprah withdrawals. It’s really bad. Last week I had a crazy dream where I was trying to find a pair of sunglasses and all of a sudden I was in Walmart and Oprah (who was wearing FLIP FLOPS!) handed me a pair. I woke up before I could hear her sweet voice. Sigh. THEN yesterday while I was driving to work, I pulled up at a stop light and a shiny black suburban passed by. OMG it was Oprah driving the car. Well…not really. It was a woman that looked just like her.

While figuring out what to type in this paragraph, I did a google search for “Oprah Vegan” because I remembered the show where she went vegan for a week with all of her staffers and LOOK! that post was a year ago! WHAT WHAT?! I think this means we’re destined to meet. Or if not, maybe someone who knows her really well could get her drunk on Moscow Mules and have her call my voicemail? All I want her to say is TRACY SHUTTERBEAN in her voice. It would seriously make my decade.

I wonder if Oprah would like this salad? I’m pretty sure she would. Besides the base of romaine lettuce, there’s a bit of brown rice, avocado chunks, cucumber, nori shreds, edamame, carrots & sesame seeds. It’s hearty yet light! I bet she’d ask for more green onion miso dressing. Of course she’d ask for more dressing! That dressing IS SO DANG GOOD.

Without further adieu…

SUSHI ROLL EDAMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAME SAAAAAAAALAD FOR EVERYONE!

Did I tell you that Cooper can do the Oprah voice now? It’s glorious.


And we’re off!

First things first. Green onion miso dressing.

    Too funny, Tracy– I JUST made this for dinner last night from Isa’s book! Great minds think alike! (And what a great cookbook– I have yet to make a bad recipe from it!)

  • February 2, 2012

    This is one of the prettiest salads I’ve seen! I love this idea!

  • February 2, 2012

    This looks delicious and so pretty, too!

  • February 2, 2012

    i could just drink that dressing plain, not to mention the entire salad looks heaven-sent!

  • February 2, 2012

    this looks SO GOOD! and reminds me that I need restock my nori supply…sometimes I eat it like chips.
    I love that Cooper does the Oprah voice…totes glorious!
    ps I hope your Oprah dreams come true one day!

  • February 2, 2012

    This salad looks delicious! You should totally include little soundbytes in your post saying something in your Oprah voice… That would be glorious.

  • February 2, 2012

    Oh yum! I can’t wait to try this salad!

  • Andrea Y.
    February 2, 2012

    Looks delicious! Go Ducks!!

  • February 2, 2012

    I miss Oprah, too! When is OWN gonna start showing reruns?? I will totally upgrade from basic cable.

  • Angela
    February 2, 2012

    This recipe looks ah-mazing! I think it needs a little wasabi, though. When I eat sushi, my husband tells me I am only really using it as a vehile to chow down on wasabi. And…that might be true. :)

  • February 2, 2012

    This is an awesome idea. It looks delicious, especially the dressing :D

    February 2, 2012

    Tracy..can I steal your lunchbox? Where did you buy the salad dressing container?As a veggie I love sushi–the freshness, the ginger, the wasabi.. making me hungry now!. I would throw in some pickled ginger in my version..but love love this idea.

    • February 2, 2012

      It’s Martha Stewart for Macy’s! I LOVE IT.

  • February 2, 2012

    That needs to get in my mouth RIGHT NOW!

    Man, that looks bananas good. I will be having it this weekend…

    • February 2, 2012

      YAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!! heart you, dottie!

  • February 2, 2012

    This post is hilarious!!

  • February 2, 2012

    This is SUCH and awesome idea. Plus, it eliminates the whole chopsticks thing, which, for the life of me, I’ll never get the hang of!

    • February 2, 2012

      The only reason why I use chopsticks….is so I don’t eat that fast. Haha!!

  • February 2, 2012

    This sounds so amazing! I think I might have drooled on my keyboard just reading the title of this post. Definitely trying this out ASAP!

  • February 2, 2012

    Haha.. You’re too funny! I love your Oprah obsession.

    I’m having a girls night tomorrow and I think I just found what I’ll be making, yummy! It looks to good! I’m thinking some homemade pina colada’s, none of the premixed too sweet stuff, would go excellent as well! Yay!

    • February 2, 2012

      ooooh!!! Pina COLADAS!?!!!! You’re living right. Do you use coco lopez? I could eat a can of that stuff.

  • February 2, 2012

    I want that RIGGGGGGGGHHHHT NOOOOOOWWWWWWW!

  • February 2, 2012

    Sooo my Aunt lives beside Oprah (true story!).. I’ll tell her to invite her over, give her copious amounts of alcohol and call that number ;)! (I’m positive they aren’t friends hahah but stranger things have happened!!)

  • Michelle
    February 2, 2012

    This looks delish!!! Adding it to my list!!

    GO DUCKS!! ;) my sons a Beaver… whats a mother to do…

  • February 2, 2012

    I was just saying the other day about how MUCH I missed Oprah and how with SO many talk shows to choose from during daytime, it’s just not the same without Oprah (especially now that I’m on mat leave!). I even did an Oprah voice in a blog comment last night! I share your O love! Oh, and the salad looks so delish! Gonna queue it up for next week’s menu!

    • February 2, 2012

      It’s so sad that Cooper will come home from school and Oprah won’t be on! What daytime talk shows are there anyways?!! I know of Ellen…

      • February 2, 2012

        Right now there’s a lot of one syllable talk shows…Of course The View, then they came out with The Talk, and then The Chew, I think it comes on after The View? Anyone else think I’m starting to sound like Dr. Seuss? Then there’s Anderson Cooper, Nate Berkus, Dr. Phil, Rachel Ray, The Doctors, Dr. Oz. There’s this one brit guy, I think it’s Jeremy something? Another trashy show trash like Maury, Springer, etc. Wow…I can’t believe I actually know all this! I hardly even watch tv during the day! I’m a drawer of useless knowledge, ha! I really do miss Oprah!

        • February 4, 2012

          Whoa!!! There’s a lot more than I thought!!

  • February 2, 2012

    HOLYCOWIAMMAKINGTHISRIGHTNOW!

    Sorry, you just combined so many things I love in one recipe I was a bit verklempt. It was meant to be!

    Can you interpret my dream from the other night? I dreamt I was trying to swim away from 2 men who were chasing me. They happened to be extremely good-looking. Also, the substance I was swimming in was pea soup and I was wearing one of those old-fashion, full-length prairie woman dresses and it totally wasn’t working out for me. Analyze that!

    • February 2, 2012

      hmmmm. that’s kind of exciting. did you eat any of this pea soup?
      maybe you’re denying yourself.

      • February 5, 2012

        I did not. It was more a difficult medium to swim through than a tasty snack. I definitely should be denying myself more. I’ve been eating like a piggy all weekend! Ha! ;)

  • February 2, 2012

    Been dreaming about this all day. Want.

  • February 2, 2012

    This looks soooo delish! I totes agree that Oprah would love it!
    I’m a student at University of Oregon, thanks for the ducks shout-out! Even though I know it wasn’t for me specifically, I’m just going to pretend. :)

    • February 2, 2012

      GO DUCKS!!!!

      What year are you? What are you studying?!

  • February 2, 2012

    This salad has been on my to-make list for weeks now. This is extra motivation to get on it!
    Oprah would definitely love this salad too.
    I live in Sydney, Australia and when she came to visit last year it was a HUGE deal (like in the papers every day tracking her every move huge) and they renamed the Opera House the Oprah House for that week. I know that doesn’t even make sense, but it happened.
    And I totally still call it that.

    • February 4, 2012

      Don’t stop calling it Oprah house!!

  • February 2, 2012

    We are so on the same wavelength! I just made this last night: http://emmycooks.wordpress.com/2012/02/02/simple-brown-rice-sushi-bowl/ Next time I will try that good looking dressing of yours.

    you. are. hilariousssss.

  • February 4, 2012

    Definitely going to try this dressing. I love a good miso dressing. The Oprah talk was truly hilarious – I could hear you talking as I read it.

  • February 8, 2012

    Hi Tracy,

    I just found your blog, and I am so glad I did! This salad looks out of this world good! I should know better than to read food blogs when I’m hungry, but this one has tipped me over the edge. Time to go get some lunch!

    ~Emily~

  • February 8, 2012

    March 3, 2012

    OMG Tracy, I pinned this a few weeks ago and just got the ingredients together to make it. I must say that I couldn’t find red miso paste anywhere so I bought brown miso paste instead, but HolyMotherofOprah I could drink that dressing alone! It’s like a deconstructed sushi dinner in my mouth

    • March 4, 2012

      RIIIIIGGHTTTTT???? I’m glad to know it’s good with another miso. i mean really….i don’t think it matters!

  • March 19, 2012

    I found your post on Pinterest and I’m totally making this salad this week. I LOVE sushi so I can’t wait to try it! I was shopping trying to gather ingredients and I’m having a hard time finding Red Miso. Any suggestions? Thanks for posting!

    • March 19, 2012

      I don’t think you have to be married to red miso. Can you find another color? I’d suggest brown. White might be a little too light. Good luck!

    We made this for dinner tonight and added baked tofu on top! So yum!

  • March 27, 2013

    I was searching for a recipe to use what I had in the fridge when I came upon this one. This came together so quick. I loved the miso dressing. This might be my new favorite go to recipe!

  • May 6, 2013

    I love this! I am making today! Only one revision for me ’cause I can’t handle soggy nori….I will substitute hijiki instead…yum!
