Cook's Notes

Most supermarkets carry soba noodles in the international foods aisle, but if you can't find them, substitute whole-wheat spaghetti.

    Also--to get the noodles to blend well with the other ingredients: break them in half before cooking.

    This is a FANTASTIC dish, I make it often. Healthy and cheap. I also make a whole broiler or roaster in the crock pot in lieu of a rotisserie chicken.

    I made this for the 28 day challenge today to have for lunch this week. It's great although it needed more seasoning for my taste. I have a garlic pepper grinder at work and it was just what it needed.

    We make this all the time, it is so healthy and delicious! I have used quinoa in place of the noodles, and once, in a pinch, I had to use lemon juice instead of lime. Definitely a different flavor, but still very good. And white wine vinegar makes a perfect stand in for rice vinegar.

    I absolutely love this salad, but with a couple variations. Not wild about soba noodles so I use whole grain spaghetti, use all sesame oil instead of part vegetable, and double the dressing. Be sure not to overcook the noodles and the leftovers will be just as good the next day!
