Made it tonight and my husband and I loved it! We love edamame, so this recipe will definitely become a regular in our house! Did not have pineapple so I used kiwi instead (the only fruit I had handy). I give 5 stars.

Didn't love this recipe. I made it earlier in the day and by supper it had wilted considerably. I loved most of the ingredients, however. Next time, I'll leave out the mint and make a homemade sweet chili dressing instead.

Chile-garlic sauce is made by several brands, but you probably most often see it by the same company who makes "Sriracha" found in the asian food section:

Yes --what is chile garlic sauce? IS this store bought or homemade sauce? I do not want to try making it without that sauce! Please someone respond.

what brand is the chile-garlic sauce?

Wendy - 2011-06-08 01:58:06

It is good w/o pineapple! See, the dressing is so simple: LIME juice and honey, mint and chile-garlic sauce. xoxo, mama - 2011-06-05 22:42:10
