This is one of my favourite salad dishes with soba noodles. The earthy soba noodles are served with “yakumi” condiments to add fragrance and flavours to the dish. It contains 5 different aromatic vegetables and herbs such as ginger, spring onions, and mint. You may also add chilly, or the zest of citrus fruits to taste. The creamy peanut sauce will give a rich texture to this salad.
2 Spring onions, finely chopped (soak in cold water to remove bitterness, drain well)
Cook the soba noodles following the package instructions.Drain and rinse the noodles thoroughly in cold water to stop overcooking.
