Soba Noodle Salad

One of my favorite Asian type salads to have is this one.  Its kind of a toss anything you want in there type of salad.  For me a few things are a must- peanuts, cabbage, onion and lettuce.  If you have pea pods, snow peas, carrots, peppers... they go great in there.  The dressing really pulls it all together.  Nothing could be more satisfying to me on a warm day than a salad like this.

Soba Noodle Salad
This makes two large salads

2 of the pre-measured pods of Buckwheat noodles or about three thumb sized stacks (does that make any sense?)
1 cup purple cabbage
1 cup matchstick pieces of carrot
1 onion diced
1/4 cup minced cilantro
2 sprigs mint, minced
1 small head of romaine chopped
2 tablespoons Braggs Soy Liquid or soy sauce
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/4 cup seasoned rice vinegar
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/3 cup peanuts chopped
2 tablespoons sesame seeds

Boil the buckwheat noodles (soba noodles) for three minutes, drain and set aside.

In a large bowl whisk the dressing ingredients together. Chop your veggies and through them in.  Then throw the Soba noodles in.  Mix well.
