Soba Noodle & Edamame Salad with Soy Dressing
It's a very filling salad that can be eaten alone as a meal. I love how it stays well in the lunch box and you won't get tired eating again for dinner next day! Feel free to add/substitute any other veggies like chopped cabbage or bell peppers but no compromises with the dressing. Since soba and edamame does not have much flavor in itself - they soak up the umami flavor from the dressing making every bite scrumptious. Soba Noodle & Edamame Salad with Soy Dressing 3-4 servings
