The must be one of the healthiest salads on the planet! That said, there’s a lot going on here, ingredient wise. Next time, I think I’d omit the tomatoes. Texture-wise I’m not even sure the edamame is needed but it’s so good for you, I get it. I’d bump up the basil a bit too: nice flavor esp. with the mango & avo.
