Cold Soba Salad With Your Favorite Fixings

What do you guys have for lunch? Lunch to me is the wildcard meal — one day I’ll have cold pizza out of the fridge, another day I’ll skip it altogether and scarf down a huge chocolate chip cookie at 3pm. This week, though, I switched it up, and made a big batch of soba noodle salad. It’s SO GOOD and endlessly versatile, and best of all, it doesn’t make you want to nap for the rest of the day. Here’s how to do it:

1. Boil some soba noodles. Most soba noodle packages have the noodles conveniently bundled into individual serving sizes, so you can easily see how many days it will feed you.

2. Chop up whatever veggies you have. I had radishes, cucumbers, and peppers. Scallions and cilantro are really good in this salad.

3. Make the sauce. This one is adapted from Smitten Kitchen, and it’s delicious (I added a squirt of sriracha and one clove of chopped garlic). A peanut sauce would also be great.

4. Assemble. Toss your noodles with some of the sauce, top with veggies, drizzle on a little more sauce. Garnish with sesame seeds. To store, keep your noodles and chopped veggies in one container, and your sauce in another.

Yum. So good. What have you been making for lunch these days?
