soba noodle salad

This week we've mostly eaten box food for lunches - salads, raw veggies, cooked turnip cubes in Ria's lunch. One of my favourite salads is a soba noodle salad, and this week I added the green garlic to it since we didn't have green onions, which the recipe calls for. They worked well - and didn't give me garlic breath all day, as I had feared.

You can get soba noodles in the oriental section of the grocery store, but they're really expensive; they're a lot cheaper in specialty asian shops.

Cook the soba noodles according to directions; drain and rinse with cold water. Meanwhile, toast some sesame seeds. Toss the noodles with chopped green garlic, chopped chives, julienned carrots, julienned cucumber, and whatever other veggies you fancy (cabbage works well). Toss with 5 T soy sauce, 5 T rice vinegar, 1 T honey and 1 T sesame oil. Top with sesame seeds. Serve cold.
