Chilled Sesame Soy Soba Salad

Scrumptious! All right. Enough with the alliteration. Let’s get down to business.

This recipe was inspired by one of my favorite chefs, Mykl Wu. He alerted me to furikake, which was initially created to provide rice balls with a boost of umami, but it can be used anywhere you want to add salty/sweet/seafood-y flavor. How could I say “no” to furikake after that endorsement? I got nori komi furikake at Mykl’s suggestion.

The julienned vegetables give the dish excellent texture and crunch. Don’t know how to julienne? Me neither. I used a julienne tool on the zucchini and bought the carrots shredded. But I want to learn how to julienne, and Good Housekeeping makes it look so easy in this tutorial.

What’s your favorite cold noodle salad?
