This buckwheat noodle salad is my go to meal when I want something light and tasty on a hot day. It’s really simple to make for those times when you just want lunch or dinner ready in 10 minutes! I’ve given some vegetable suggestions but you can replace them with whatever you have in the fridge or whatever you feel like at the time. Enjoy!

  1. I love anything soba noodles! it’s so simple to make yet really tasty! My soba salad sauce is somewhat similar too, though i don’t add in any honey and ginger. If you feel like something spicy try adding chilli flakes! it really tastes even better if you can take spiciness.
