Soba noodle salad

DSC01693

I went to a potluck a little while ago and a friend of mine made this amazing salad. It was light, crunchy, sweet, tangy and had a distinctive sesame flavour to it. I was desperate for the recipe and when I asked for it, my friend simply stated that it was all in the dressing: Roasted Sesame Kewpie Japanese Dressing.

So this dressing can be found at asian grocery stores, particularly the ones that stock Japanese and Korean items.

 

Recipe:

  • Soba noodles
  • Kewpie Japanese dressing
  • Carrots (cut julienne)
  • Cucumber (cut julienne)
  • Baby Spinach leaves
  • Sesame seeds
  • Hard boiled eggs (optional)

 

Method:

1.Β Cook soba noodles according to package directions

2. Once the noodles are cooked,Β drain under cold running water for a few minutes minutes until they feel silky

3. In a large bowl combine the noodles, carrots, cucumber, spinach, hard boiled eggs (sliced) and Kewpie dressing. Mix well.

4. Serve with a sprinkling of sesame seeds
