Ingredients

  • 2 Little gem salad
  • 1 Spring onion
  • 1/4 Cucumber
  • 1/2 cup Cashew nuts
  • 1 tablespoon Sesame seeds
  • 2 bunches Soba noodle
  • 4 tablespoons Vegetable oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon Sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon Rice vinegar
  • 1/2 tablespoon Mirin (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons Light soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sriracha sauce or tomato paste
  • 1/2 tablespoon Lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon Water
  • 1/2 tablespoon Ginger (minced)
  • 1 clove Garlic (minced)

Directions

Prepare the veggies. Cut the cucumber into matchsticks, slice the salad leaves (give them a good wash first) and chop the spring onion.
Cook the soba noodles in boiling water for about 4 minutes or follow packet's instructions. Drain and rinse with cold water.
To make the salad dressing, simply add the oils, vinegar, mirin, soy sauce, Sriracha sauce, lime juice, garlic and ginger to a jar and shake.
Heat a dry frying pan and toast the cashew nuts for a few minutes shaking the pan halfway. Add the sesame seeds and toast quickly. Be careful not to burn them.
Mix the salad, cucumber, spring onion and soba noodles in a serving bowl. Add the dressing ( you should have a bit left over), sprinkle the cashew nuts and seeds and top with some fresh coriander. Squeeze a bit of lime juice if desire.
