Soba Noodle Salad

I was looking for something light and nourishing for dinner the other night, and came up with this yummy soba noodle salad (based on, oh, a thousand recipes around the place).  It’s a great combo of noodles, steamed greens, fresh crunchy cucumber, with some bite and tanginess from the picked ginger and the lime-heavy dressing.

Soba Noodle Salad

200g Soba Noodles
1 bunch bok choy
1/2 lebanese cucumber, cut into ribbons
1 shallot, finely sliced
Pickled ginger to taste

Juice of 1 lime
1/2 tsp sugar
Pinch salt
1 tsp sesame oil

Cook the noodles according to packet directions.

Mix all dressing ingredients together until well combined.  Adjust seasoning to taste.

Wash the bok choy, and separate the green leaves from the white stems.  Steam the stems for around 2 minutes, then add the leaves for another minute.

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, and toss with dressing.  Serve.

Super easy, and super yum!
