Preparation

  1. Combine all of the ingredients for the dressing in a blender, starting with 1/4 cup of water.
  2. Blend on high until everything has combined and add more water as needed.
  3. Using the spaghetti spiralizer fitting, cut the sweet potato into noodles.
  4. Place a pan on the stove over medium heat.
  5. Add the olive oil, garlic, and sweet potato and sauté them for 3 minutes, flipping them with tongs regularly.
  6. Add edamame to the pan and cook it for an additional 2-3 minutes, or until the edamame is warm and sweet potatoes are tender but not mushy. Remove them from the heat.
  7. Combine spinach, cabbage, green onions, and sweet potato noodle/edamame mixture in a large bowl.
  8. If you're eating them all at once, add the dressing and toss everything to combine. If you don't think you will finish the whole salad, add dressing to each serving to avoid spinach from wilting.
