Soba Noodle Salad
August 7, 2016 - 1 Comments
Cold Soba noodle salad with grilled chicken and bacon balsamic vinaigrette. Dressed in fresh cherry multi-colored tomatoes, and corn. Garnished with organic basil leaves.
It takes just a few simple ingredients to make this delicious soba noodle salad. Multi-colored cherry tomatoes, one piece of bacon, two shallots, a few fresh basil leaves, and of course Japanese buckwheat noodles called udon. These noodles are often served cold during hot months and hot during colder months. I decided to add yummy grilled chicken to my salad, and this was a superb idea 🙂
Soba noodles take a very short time to cook, about 4-5 minutes. Please make sure you rinse soba noodles for at least 2-4 minutes under cold water before you start adding other ingredients to it.
Grilled chicken tastes perfect with soba noodle salad. I needed some extra protein in my salad, and I am glad 🙂 I went for chicken.
I love to make my dressing for salads we make. This delicious soba noodle salad dressing was an instant hit:) I combined one slice of pan fried bacon, three basil leaves, 1/4 cup of balsamic vinegar dressing. Put everything into a food processor and pulse for about 10 seconds. Results are amazing! This delicious dressing brings so much flavor to the salad.
Finally, serve cold and enjoy your meal 🙂 I also would like to recommend my Angel hair pasta salad loaded with fresh mozzarella cheese and veggies.
