Asian Flavor Profiles

Every ingredient in this recipe shouts out its health benefits. The fact that it tastes good—and can be done in 11 minutes—is a bonus. Asian flavor profiles are represented well: the tartness of vinegar (an age-old health booster), sweet and savory marmalade, and a splash of spice from mustard bring out the slightly nutty, very green taste of edamame, a soybean variety that has been enjoyed in Asian cultures for centuries. There are even Japanese poems about it. The crunch of bright carrots and broccoli makes this a salad good for adults and kids alike.
