I fell in love with the Panera Bread® Shrimp and Soba Salad, decided to recreate it myself, and fell in love with my recipe. This is now one of my favorites!

8 cups


Orange Miso Dressing:

  • ¼ cup miso paste

  • ¼ cup canola oil

  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar, or more to taste

  • 1 tablespoon grated orange zest

  • 1 tablespoon orange juice

  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger root

  • 1 teaspoon mirin (Japanese sweet wine)

  • 1 teaspoon peanut butter

  • 1 teaspoon chile garlic sauce

  • 1 (8.8 ounce) package dried soba noodles

  • 2 cups baby spinach

  • 1 cup carrots, cut into matchstick-size pieces

  • ½ cup shredded cabbage

  • ½ cup sliced snow peas

  • 8 cherry tomatoes

  • 16 cooked shrimp, peeled and deveined

  • 2 green onions, finely chopped

  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds


  1. Whisk miso paste, canola oil, rice vinegar, orange zest, orange juice, ginger, mirin, peanut butter, and chile garlic sauce together in a bowl until dressing is blended.

  2. Bring water to a boil in a large pot. Stir in soba noodles and return water to a boil. Boil noodles until tender, 5 to 8 minutes. Drain noodles in a colander under cold running water until cool, about 1 minute. Toss cooked soba noodles with 1/2 of the miso dressing in a large bowl until thoroughly coated.

  3. Divide spinach among 4 serving bowls; top each with 1/4 of the dressed noodles. Divide carrots, cabbage, snow peas, and cherry tomatoes among each bowl; top each with 4 shrimp. Drizzle remaining miso dressing onto each bowl to taste; sprinkle with green onions and toasted sesame seeds.

Cook's Note:

Adjust the amount of rice vinegar to taste based on how tart you prefer it. I add 2 to 3 tablespoons.
