Ingredients

  • 1 pound soba noodles (see notes)

  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Asian sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon powdered wasabi (see notes)

Preparation

  1. 1. In a 5- to 6-quart pan over high heat, bring about 3 quarts water to a boil. Add noodles and cook until tender to bite, 3 to 6 minutes. Drain noodles and rinse gently under cold running water until cool.
  2. 2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, mix rice vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil, and wasabi. Pour about half the dressing into a small bowl and reserve. Add noodles to the large bowl; mix to coat. Cover and chill until cold, about 1 hour, or up to 4 hours.
  3. 3. Just before serving, add reserved dressing to noodles and mix to coat. Sprinkle salad with green onions and bonito flakes, if using.
