Cold Soba Noodles

I really think this goes down as one of my better and favorite recipes. Every time I make it for people, young or old, I get the greatest response. The best part is, it's so easy to prepare and you probably already have a lot of the ingredients in your fridge already.
Soba noodles are made from buckwheat, a grain high in vitamin A, calcium and selenium. They're also gluten free which makes them a great choice for kids with allergies or on certain diets. Unlike pasta noodles, these cook up in 2-3 minutes, so don't walk away from the stove for too long.
This dish is a great recipe to take to a potluck meal or any time you're feeding a crowd on a dime. I guarantee they'll love it.
