Soba Noodle Salad with Miso Ginger Dressing – Recipe!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Chilled salads on a warm summer evening or afternoon is just what summer calls for and this Soba Noodle Salad with Miso Ginger Dressing is packed with delightful Asian flavors and can be made within minutes.

I enjoy a good noodle salad with vegetables scattered throughout and this one is so delicious and it’s loaded with asparagus, carrots, cabbage and fresh herbs.  Soba noodles cook up quickly in a boiling bath, along with asparagus and carrots, which only need a simple blanch (couple minutes in the water).  What’s great about this salad is that you can prepare the noodles and vegetables in one pot and the dressing in a bowl — creating a magnificent meal in no time at all.

The dressing is a mix of miso, fresh ginger, soy sauce, a minced jalapeno, and rice wine vinegar — mostly pantry items.  The flavors meld together — Soba, vegetables and the dressing — better than a box of take-out with so much more freshness.  You can eat this salad at room temperature or chilled from the refrigerator — it’s simply delicious.
