Soba Noodle Salad with Rice Wine Vinegar Dressing

At the checkout line in the grocery store, the checker asked me,”What are these, I have never seen them before?” I am so surprised that someone who works in a grocery store has never heard of soba noodles. What is the world coming to? Made from buckwheat, these noodles are wonderful cold or hot. Add in the crisp veggies and tangy dressing, and you have a great dinner, side dish or lunch.

Cook noodles, chop veggies and stir together:
