NOTES ON INGREDIENTS
There are some notes for wonderful edamame and mango salad:
- edamame – I suggest frozen-shelled edamame
- mango – any sort of mango will do but you want it to be firm, so make sure it’s not overripe, even a little underripe would do
- Both canned and homemade black beans work well, as does fresh, frozen, or canned corn.
