Soba Salad with Soy-Wasabi Vinaigrette

In addition to their satisfying textures, steamed vegetables retain more water-soluble nutrients than their boiled counterparts. Curly soba noodles, found in the international or ethnic aisle of your grocery store, impart a neutral flavor that works well in this Asian-inspired entrée.
