This is good. I used Balsamic and a little chile oil. I think it could use more kick, so next time I may add some red pepper flakes. I used julienned carrots, peppers, zucchini and snap peas. I also later added some tempeh, I'll have that for lunch tomorrow.
This was an unusual flavor! I found black vinegar at the Asian market and wanted to try it. How do you describe the taste of it...?? ...soy sauce and Worceteshire (sp?) sauce combined perhaps? I don't really know. I used 1 teaspoon of regular sesame oil and 1/2 teaspoon of toasted sesame oil. For the broccoli I substituted 2 cups chopped radicchio and 1 cup chopped cilantro and elephant garlic for regular garlic. ... tofu instead of chicken. Soba noodles aren't the most visually stunning food, but they sure tasted good in this recipe. For a party, I would probably sub somen for soba in regards to color/presentation. The marinade was earthy/musty-quite unique. Perfect at room temperature. Oh, forgot the carrots then I noticed they aren't even listed in the ingredients. OOoops!! Thanks for sharing your very interesting salad recipe. cg
