Soba Noodle Salad with Chicken and Scallions


Soba is made from buckwheat, a gluten-free grain, so it's good for people with celiac disease. Some brands of soba also contain wheat -- check the ingredient list.

    This is delicious but only if you double the amount of sauce. If you don't, it's very dry and lacks zing.
