This is a great summer dish, happens to be pretty healthy and you don’t feel like you are missing anything. The tahini/sesame oil make it really nutty and is better for you than the usual peanut sauce. This is a spicy dish! Lower the amount of chili oil if you are not keen on spicy food. Make sure your oils and soy sauce are organic to avoid GMOs.
Many soba noodle salads have too much sodium and oil. This one is cut down considerably without sacrificing flavor.
