Escarole and Edamame Salad

I love escarole. It's delicate bitter flavor has just the right bite to get your attention and keep it, but not overwhelm you. Add to it the crunchy protein-rich little edamame and you have just about the perfect salad.

2 cups frozen shelled edamame (fresh soybeans)
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon Suzanne's Specialties brown rice syrup
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive or avocado oil
2 tablespoons sweet white miso
1 medium bunch escarole, rinsed very well, sliced into thin strips
1/3 cup finely chopped fresh mint

Bring a pot of water to a boil, lightly salted. Cook edamame for 5 minutes. Drain well and transfer to a strainer and rinse thoroughly with cold water to stop the cooking process. In a small saucepan, over low heat, whisk together red wine vinegar, rice syrup, salt, pepper, oil and miso. When the dressing is smooth and just warmed through, remove from heat and set aside to cool to room temperature.

Mix together edamame, escarole and fresh mint in a large bowl. Spoon dressing over top and toss to coat. Serve immediately.

Makes about 4 servings.
