Cold Soba (Buckwheat Noodles) and Cucumber Salad

Cold Soba Noodle and Cucumber Salad

This simple Asian-flavored cold noodle dish is delicious even without the parsley or cilantro sauce, though I highly recommend it. Hearty soba (buckwheat) noodles mingle with refreshing cucumber, and as an added bonus, these noodles are naturally gluten-free. That being said, you can substitute udon or any long whole-grain pasta for the soba. Photos by Evan Atlas. more→
