The first time that I tried a cold noodle salad, I was working at a Japanese restaurant. The concept of having a cold noodle salad on a hot day blew my mind, and from that point forward, I knew I had to create a recipe of my own. I love to make this one and it’s great because the ingredients really shine and you can adapt the recipe to fit whatever you have on hand. I do recommend using raw shiitakes, as they act like a sponge to soak up all of the flavor from the delicious Kissed by Binchotan salad dressing.
Step 1 -
Cook Soba noodles according to package directions. Rinse with cold water, drain well and set aside.
Step 2 -
In a large mixing bowl combine all the salad ingredients, but the bok choy, cilantro leaves and toasted sesame seeds.
Step 3 -
Add the dressing and toss to combine well all ingredients. Serve with bok choy on side and top with sesame seeds and cilantro leaves.
