Edamame, Celery, Bean Sprout and Candied Buddha’s Hand Slaw

I went to Russo’s again this morning and was sitting around this afternoon feeling a little hungry. So I decided to give a shot at my take on the Myer’s + Chang classic. These amounts are just approximate… as I tend to “wing” it when pulling together a spontaneous dish.

1 celery heart, washed and sliced
1 c edamame (cooked and shelled)
1/2 c bean sprouts
1/2 cup coarsely chopped cilantro
2 tbsp chopped candied citrus peel
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp fresh Meyer lemon juice
1/2 tsp minced ginger
2 tsp sesame oil
salt and pepper to taste

I sliced the celery, combined it with the edamame and bean sprouts. Then I added the cilantro and the chopped candied Buddha’s hand peel. I threw a few cranks of sea salt and pepper on top.

Then, in a separate bowl I added the lemon juice, soy sauce and ginger and whisked it together. I added the sesame oil slowly — while continuing to whisk. I poured the dressing on top of the salad, put the lid on the salad bowl and shook like crazy to mix it up and to get the sugar on the candied peels to dissolve a little.

It was delicious… and if I do say so myself, just as good (if not better) than the celery and edamame slaw at Myer’s + Chang… so I’m pretty psyched!
