This is an interesting salad that is a bit different than the usual shrimp and pasta salad. Recipe source: Sunset Magazine
- Boil soba in boiling water for 5-8 minutes; drain and rinse with cold water and then drain again.
- While noodles are cooking, mix together wasabi and 1 tablespoon cold water in a small bowl or cup.
- Let stand 5 minutes and then add the soy sauce and lemon juice and set aside.
- In a large salad bowl toss together the spinach, noodles, green onions, shrimp, ginger and dressing.
dh and i loved this salad. simple to make, good for a hot summer weeknight meal. i used green tea soba noodles, which are a bit lighter than regular soba. also subbed some napa cabbage for the spinach, cause that's what i had on hand. will definitely make again!
this was a wonderful quick lunch meal which is easy to prepare. the only changes i made was adding fresh grated ginger to the dressing as i didn't have pickled ginger to add at the end. i prefer my spinach wilted so i added it to the colander before draining the soba noodles. then i added some thai basil from my garden. very refreshing.
