    Zeldaz's Note:

    A cold noodle salad combining east and west. For best flavor, be sure to get soba made with 100% buckwheat, not the kind made with wheat flour added. The kind that includes wheat also takes 9 to 10 minutes to cook. To make it GF, make sure your noodles and soy sauce are gluten-free, and substitute a mild white wine vinegar for rice vinegar.
