    Excellent salad. I added crushed ginger and hot chili paste to the dressing and it was delicious. I also added sliced grilled marinated skirt steak instead of the shrimp for something a little different. YUM.

    This is a great dish. I've made it several times, and have taken it to 3 potluck dinners where it received rave reviews. I make the following changes: In place of the soba noodles, I use 100% whole-wheat spaghetti; to make it vegetarian, I substitute diced tofu for the shrimp (sautéed until lightly to moderately golden); and I substitute another herb such as basil or parsley for the cilantro, as I don't care for the latter. This is definitely a keeper.

    Very fresh and yummy!!! Pretty easy. I didn't get any heat from the serrano so may spice it a bit more next time.

    this dish is soooo delicious. i left out the edamame and carrots and added more cucumbers and sliced bell peppers instead. In fact, add whatever vegetables you like more instead! the dressing is what makes this dish! i added some chopped ginger and a jalapeno to the dressing and blended it all. this dish is so refreshing and summery! a favorite for sure!!!

    This is a great salad! I don't recommend keeping it a second day, though.
