  1. Bring lightly salted water to a boil in a large pot. Add soba noodles; cook, stirring occasionally until tender, about 5 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water. Set aside.
  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir ginger and garlic until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat.
  3. 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!
