Soba and Slaw Salad with Peanut Dressing

Lee Harrelson

Total time: 40 minutes. Look for soba noodles, rice vinegar, chile paste, and soy sauce in the specialty-foods aisle of your supermarket or in Asian markets. Use packaged slaw mix in place of the red cabbage and carrot if you're in a hurry. Try this recipe with coarsely chopped rotisserie chicken instead of shrimp.

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 2 1/2 cups salad, 1 tablespoon onions, and 1 1/2 teaspoons peanuts)
