Soba Salad with Miso Dressing
Sob From preparation to the plate, this recipe takes roughly 45 minutes. Head to the store and pick up pepper, radishes, scallions, and a few other things to make it today. To use up the vegetable oil you could follow this main course with the Blueberry Coffee Cake #SundaySupper as a dessert.
Bring 4 quarts water to a boil in a large pot and add 2tablespoons salt.
Combine the miso paste, ginger, soy sauce, and lime juice in a blender and blend, at medium speed until smooth.
Add the egg and blend until combined. With the motor running, slowly add the oil. Once the dressing is smooth, add pepper to taste; you won't need salt, because the miso and soy sauce are salty. (The dressing can be made up to 1 day ahead and refrigerated, covered.)
Add the soba noodles to the boiling water and cook, stirring often, until al dente.
Drain the noodles and rinse well under cold running water.
Drain well, transfer to a baking sheet, then spread out and let cool.
In a large bowl, combine the noodles with the carrots, scallions, and radishes. Toss with the miso dressing and serve at room temperature or cold. (The soba salad can be made up to 2 hours in advance.)
