“A zesty treat--Goes great with bbq'd chicken and a beer. This dish has more of a Thai flavor. For a Japanese flavor, omit the pepper flakes, peanuts, and cilantro. Add 1/4 c. of toasted sesame seeds. If you're feeling adventurous mix in 1/2 c. of shredded dried seaweed (nori) just before serving. You can substitute ramen noodles for soba.” - by Christiana Heins

- In a large pot, cook soba noodles according to package directions. Drain, rinse noodles with cold water, and set aside.

"I give this 5 stars for the dressing alone. I have been trying to figure out how to duplicate the dressing which I've had on a similar salad and this hit the spot. That said, you should know that I "m..." See moreodified" it a bit. I used approx 3 Tbsp of lime juice, no zest, 1 Tbsp of white sugar and no garlic (husband hates it). The pepper flakes were a nice touch and you could also use Chinese chili (red) oil for some heat. To make it a dinner salad, I took precooked chicken, tossed it in some soy sauce and about 1/2 tsp of grated fresh ginger and added that, along with a couple of finely chopped green onions. I served it on a bed of chopped romaine lettuce. YUMMY! Thanks so much for the dressing - you made my day."
"Yum! What a great recipe. I followed it almost exactly except I added sesame seeds instead of the peanuts, honey instead of brown sugar, Asian chili sauce instead of peppers, and some grated ginger...." See more I also threw in some edamame along with shredded carrots. Just as good, if not better then the restaurants. UPDATE: two days later and its AMAZING!!! Definitely let it sit as long as you can. I wish it would last longer then two days but sadly its all gone:("
