2  12 oz packages frozen green beans

1  10 -12 oz package  frozen asparagus

1 package frozen shelled edamame

3/4 cup Sesame Dressing (recipe below)

1 cup toasted almonds ( I toast them in the microwave on a paper towel - checking after one minute - it usually take about 2 minutes to lightly toast)

1 cup dried cranberries - or whatever is on hand, raisins, cherries etc.

Salt and pepper to taste

 

Put vegetables in a large bowl and microwave until no longer frozen, but not yet heated through. (Stir every minute to check- about 4 minutes) Add almonds, cranberries, and dressing. Mix thoroughly. Add salt and pepper to taste.

 

Sesame Dressing

 

1/2 cup rice vinegar

2 tbsp mirin (Japanese sweet cooking wine, found in the Asian foods section of the grocery store - substitute sherry if you can't find mirin)

2 tbsp canola oil

2 tsp sesame oil

3 tbsp sugar

2 tbsp soy sauce

1/4 tsp salt

1 tbsp sesame seeds

 

Combine all ingredients in a jar and shake until combined.

 

Makes about 3/4 cup
