Traditionally, this soba noodle salad is served cold. Mirin is a sweet wine that can be found in most Asian grocery stores. I do not know of any substitute.

  • Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir ginger and garlic until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat.

  • Mix ginger, garlic, miso paste, lime juice, and mirin together in a small bowl. Pour salad dressing mixture over soba noodles. Top with green onions, sesame seeds, and cilantro. Chill until serving.

Cook's Note:

If the dressing mixture seems too thick, you can thin it out with a little bit of chicken broth.

I love cold soba noodles and this dish was good too! I think it needed a little more mirin to counter the salty miso taste. But the lime juice is perfect! Read More

I really enjoyed this salad. It was light, tasty, and fresh. I added some edamame beans for a little protein. I can see adding all sorts of veggies or other proteins to this! Read More
