I noticed they had a new salad on display. Wild Pacific Salmon with kale and Soba Noodles.
I must say I was intrigued. The salad looked so good and healthy too.
What's not to love with fresh salmon, mixed greens and noodles?
My inspiration photo below:
I knew I wanted to make this at home. There was no recipe,
so I set out to recreate it from the picture.
Soba noodles are so good. Soba is the Japanese name for buckwheat. It is synonymous with a type of thin noodle made from buckwheat flour, and in Japan can refer to any thin noodle.
Please excuse my fuzzy photos. For some reason, I neglected to use our camera and ended snapping a few pictures with my cell phone.
The soba noodles are on the bottom. Tender, Tangy with Citrus.
Mixed salad greens
Cilantro- 2 chopped tablespoons
I used a bottled sweet chili sauce, however there are plenty of recipes online if you choose to make your own.
Soba noodles cooked and then tossed with sweet chili sauce
Soba noodles are cooked 5-8 minutes depending on your package.
Rinse with cold water and then rub them, so they separate.
You want to untangle them and get rid of the starch.
Ginger Sesame Dressing
1/2 cup virgin olive oil
3 1/2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce
2 cloves of garlic- minced
2 tablespoons of honey
1 1/2 tablespoons peeled- minced fresh ginger
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
2 1/2 tablespoons water
Combine all ingredients in a jar.
Put in microwave for 30 seconds to melt the honey.
Refrigerate until ready to use.
This salad is addicting! I practically inhaled it.
Boudin Bakery has a seasonable bread club with loaves of bread in cute shapes.
Have a good week!
