SPRING is in the air and I am so ready, even though the weather isn’t that bad here, my eyes are in need of green and colorful scenery. So what better way to bring a Spring than with the colorful meal. If you ask me I could eat Soba noodles or Buckwheat noodles everyday, and this salad is such a nice break from everyday pasta with marinara sauce. This is light, delicious, refreshing and perfect for Springtime. 

let’s learn more about soba noodles
Soba noodles are Japanese noodles made of buckwheat flour {in translation Soba means buckwheat}. Soba noodles are served drained and cold in the summer, and hot in the winter with clear broth.The most basic soba dish is ZARU SOBA; which is boiled soba noodles served cold and are eaten with a Japanese soy-based dipping sauce.

As I was making myself dashi from Shiitake mushrooms, I thought to add soba noodles, and then I remembered that I haven’t made this salad in a while. It was a very nice bright day, full of the sunshine and this salad was perfect for my Sunday lunch.These noodles are boiled in Shiitake dashi{broth}, drained and served with crunchy vegetables that were just slightly sauteed with garlic infused oil.
Japanese cuisine is, in my opinion, simple, delicate, fresh, colorful and delicious you need only a few ingredients to make one dish packed with flavor and to get perfect balance-umami or in translation pleasant savory taste.

This salad is delicious with a presence of a matching aroma of vegetables and seasonings.
I hope you will try it and enjoy this light but the flavorful salad that will satisfy you in every possible way.

Ingredients

  • ½ Pack approximately Soba Noodles, 2 oz Noodles per person
  • Drizzle Of Sesame Oil
  • 2 cups Organic Broccoli Slaw

Ponzu Dressing

  • 1/4 cup Ponzu sauce
  • 1 tablespoons Mustard
  • 3 tablespoons Vegetable Oil
  • 1 tablespoon Chili Oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
  • Garnish Options
  • Sesame Seeds I used black sesame seeds
  • Shichimi togarashi
  • Green onions sliced green part
  • Nori {dried seaweed}

Instructions

  1. The best way to mix dressing is in the glass jar with the lid. If you have one use it. Add all the ingredients for the dressing, shake a jar for a couple of seconds to combine everything and set aside.
  2. BOIL water and drop the noodles in. Cook according to the pack, about 4 to 5 minutes in boiling water. You want them cooked, but not overcooked. Drain and wash under cold water. Place in the pot or bowl and drizzle just a little of sesame oil, lightly toss the noodles to get them coated with oil.
  3. In a larger serving bowl add broccoli slaw. My broccoli slaw contained: shredded raw broccoli stalks, red cabbage, and carrots. Drizzle about 1 to 2 tablespoons of Ponzu dressing over it and mix it well.
  4. When the noodles are cold enough add 1 tablespoon of dressing, mix then combine together slaw and noodles. If you need more dressing you may add. You can also serve Ponzu dressing on the side of the salad bowl, just in case if anyone needs more they can drizzle over their salad.

Recipe Notes

Soba Noodles contain Soy, Egg, and Buckwheat, so if you are allergic to any of these please substitute it with Udon -which are thicker Japanese noodles made out of the white wheat flour, salt, and water. Soba noodles are also called Buckwheat noodles.  Refrigerate for 2 days. Mke sure the salad is in the container with fitted lid.
