Soba Noodle Salad

Look for soba noodles on the Asian food aisle. If you can't find them, you can sub whole-wheat spaghetti (which takes about 10 minutes longer to cook).


This recipe goes with Roasted Salmon with Soy-Marmalade Glaze, Panko-Crusted Cod with Tomato-Basil Relish, Hoisin-Glazed Steak with Sesame Vegetables, Soy-Marinated Pork Sandwiches
