Editor's Note: If you're tired of eating the same salad over and over, then you need to give this recipe for Edamame, Avocado, and Pepitas Salad a look! This recipe has almost 15 ingredients, but don't let that deter you. It's actually easy to make and can be ready to eat in fewer than 30 minutes. This easy salad recipe can be served on its own as a light and refreshing lunch or dinner along with a fresh-baked roll. If you'd prefer, consider making this salad as an accompaniment to your favorite soup or sandwich, including the recipe authors' Fried Grouper Sandwiches with Herbed Tartar Sauce.

Florida avocados have more water than their California counterparts, but they’re just as delicious. You can make this up to one day ahead of time, but if you do, leave out the avocado and stir it in just before serving.
