Soba Noodle Salad

Vicki Butts (lazyme)


Soba noodles are a very popular lunch food in Japan. They are usually served chilled with a dipping sauce (Zaru Soba) or hot with a dashi broth. You can throw in some cooked chicken or shrimp too if you like. Need a kick? Sprinkle in some red pepper flakes, or add some wasabi, or freshly grated ginger. Now you have a perfectly healthy, delicious meal!
