  • 1 16oz package of Corn (I use Trader Joe’s Roasted Corn)
  • 1 16oz package of Edamame
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • 1/3 cup Red Bell Pepper, diced
  • ¼ cup Green Onions, sliced thin


  • DRESSING:

  • 1/3 cup Lemon Juice
  • 2 Tablespoons Dijon Mustard
  • 2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • ¾ teaspoon Black Pepper
  • In a small bowl, mix together the ingredients for the dressing: lemon juice, Dijon mustard, olive oil, kosher salt, and pepper. Set aside.
  • Bring 2 quarts water to boil in medium saucepan on high heat. Add edamame; cook 4 minutes or until they are bright green and tender. Drain and rinse under cold water. Remove shells (unless you buy the edamame with the shells previously removed).
  • Coat a medium saucepan with cooking spray and turn burner to medium high heat. Add a tablespoon of butter and once it is melted, add corn. Sauté for 3-4 minutes, stirring often. Add chopped red bell pepper and green onions and cook for another 1-2 minutes.
  • Place the sautéed corn mixture and edamame in a medium bowl. Add the dressing and mix thoroughly. This side dish is great served warm or cold.
