Recipe Tips

  • After boiling soba noodles, rinse them under cold water to stop the cooking process and remove excess starch. This helps prevent them from sticking together and maintains their firm texture.
  • For the best flavor and texture, just wait to add the dressing until right before serving.
  • This salad can be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator before serving.
