Soba Salad with Soy-Wasabi Vinaigrette
I found this little gem of a recipe in Cooking Light magazine. It was part of a Cost Plus World Market advertisement. They give the recipe and let you know that you can find rice vinegar, soba noodles, wasabi paste and soy sauce at their store. Steamed vegetables retain more water-soluble nutrients than their boiled counterparts. Curly soba noodles, found in the international or ethnic aisle of your grocery store, impart a neutral flavor that works well in this Asian-inspired entrée.
