soba noodle salad with peanut sauce

It’s been hot here the past few days and when the temperatures soar, there’s nothing that sounds better than a crisp salad for lunch. I’m switching things up today in this addition to my salad series and ditching lettuce as the main ingredient in lieu of soba noodles.

When we were in Japan for our honeymoon, we had chilled soba noodles with soy sauce for lunch one day. In typical Japanese form, the dish was so simple and straightforward, but incredibly delicious. Ever since then, I’ve had a little crush on these buckwheat noodles. The have the perfect springy bite and hold up well in this soba noodle salad.

I paired it with a yummy peanut dressing that makes it pretty irresistible. If you make a big batch, it’s just as tasty the next day for lunch!

We had some leftover flank steak so I added that to make it a little bit more substantial. Salmon or chicken would also be good! I served the salad on these new salad plates from Anthropologie, aren’t they cute?!

On another note, I’m in Colorado today for my sister-in-law’s bachelorette party. We’re headed to the mountains and I’m so excited! Make sure to follow along on Instagram too see what we’re up to!
