Soba Noodle Salad

Soba Noodle Salad

For a quick lunch, I put together this soba salad. It's just soba buckwheat noodles over lettuce, topped with all kinds of goodies (read whatever's in the fridge) cucumber slices, imitation crab sticks, egg omelette and Nam Fong char siu courtesy of Mom and Dad.

Man, that Nam Fong char siu is the best stuff not counting Dad's home made char siu. Unfortunately for me, Nam Fong is in Chinatown in Honolulu so for the time being I have to ration my frozen, vacuum sealed supply.


I foraged around and came up with a dressing made from Japanese ponzu and Mae Ploy sweet chili sauce. It worked perfectly. Sweet, sour, with a chili kick to it. The inspiration came from a somen noodle salad my Mom makes with a soy sauce, sugar and vinegar dressing so that explains why I was kind of steering the taste in that direction.
