This unique salad incorporates edamame, which are immature soybeans that cook quickly and provide a protein and fiber punch, and sriracha, a Thai-style hot sauce that is all the rage. If you don't want to purchase sriracha, feel free to substitute your favorite hot sauce or red pepper flakes to taste. 

1½ cups frozen shelled edamame
½ cup corn, fresh, frozen, or canned (drained & rinsed)
3 cups cooked brown rice (made from approximately 1 cup dry brown rice)
1 large red bell pepper, diced
3 carrots, peeled and grated
2 scallions, thinly sliced
Juice of 1 lime
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
1 teaspoon sriracha

1. Cook edamame according to package instructions. Cool.
2. Combine edamame, brown rice, corn, bell pepper, carrots, and scallions in a large bowl.
3. Whisk together lime juice, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, and sriracha. Add to large bowl and mix thoroughly.
4. Serve chilled as a side dish or vegetarian entrée.
