Japanese Soba Noodle Salad
Simple soba noodle salad, a perfect summer side
Recipe type: Salad, Noodles
Cuisine: Asian
  • 9 oz. (3 bundles) soba (buckwheat noodles) or 9 oz. thin spaghetti
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 Tablespoons sesame seeds
  1. For the dressing: mix oil, sesame oil and crushed red peppers. Heat gently in the microwave for one minute or less - set aside to slightly cool. In a medium bowl, mix together the honey and soy sauce, add the oil mixture, and whisk together until the honey is dissolved.
  2. For the noodles: Cook the soba according to package directions. Soba cooks quickly in 3 minutes or so - be sure not to overcook so the noodles are al dente. Drain the noodles into a colander, and rinse under cold running water. Drain well. Transfer to a large bowl.
  3. Pour over the dressing and toss so all the noodles are covered. Add the cilantro, green onions, and sesame seeds. Toss to combine and serve.
If you like, you can add shredded pieces of cold chicken, or shredded carrots, shredded lettuce. Put the salad together shortly before serving, so the noodles don't become soggy.
