Soba Salad with Honey Soy Sauce

With temperatures looking like they will soar slightly over the next couple of weeks, I’m really eager to share with you a tried and tested Soba Salad with Honey Soy Sauce recipe.


Soba is one of my favourite Japanese noodles. It’s made out of buckwheat and you’ll just need to boil the noodles according to the instructions on the packaging. If you live in Frankfurt, soba is readily available at all Asian supermarkets.

This recipe was adapted from Just One Cookbook (my favourite online Japanese cooking resource).

Firstly, here’s the list of ingredients for the sauce (For original recipe, please see here.)
1 Tbsp. canola or grapeseed oil
3 Tbsp. sesame oil
½ tsp. mixed chilli & pepper
3 Tbsp. honey
3 Tbsp. soy sauce

Other Ingrediants
3-4 bundles of soba noodles (serves 4)
1 spring onion
2 medium carrots, grated

1. Mix the oil, mixed chilli and pepper and sesame oil in a small sauce pan. Heat it on medium heat for 10 minutes.

2. In a separate bowl, mix the honey well with the soy sauce.

3. When the oil mixture is done, carefully mix it with the honey and soy sauce. Whisk well to ensure that the honey is dissolved.

4. Cook the soba noodles according to the instructions on the packaging (no need to add salt!). Once it’s cooked, run it under cold water and set aside to drain.

5. In a big bowl, mix the soba, spring onions, carrots and honey soy sauce. Toss the mixture well and serve either cold or at room temperature.

Although I had this for lunch on a day with a maximum of only 14 degrees Celsius, I can imagine how refreshing the noodles would be on a hot summer’s day. I love it so much that I’m serving it for dinner as a main dish with a couple of pan-fried salmon fillets.

  1. However, because you are permitted to alter the
    articles. One last thing to mention is when items outsource, be sure to send an evergreen site you know you can get long-term economic benefits.

    These types of PLR articles are more sought-after because of limited distribution.

  2. Yolande, your soba salad looks FANTASTIC!!! So glad to hear soba is easy to get there. You’ll definitely enjoy cooking this in summer, when you lose your appetite in hot summer days. 🙂 Thanks for linking back to me, and for your kind words. I just shared your link on my Facebook page. 🙂

    1. You use Just One Cookbook too? Her recipes are great, aren’t they? I’ve just checked Ottolenghi’s recipe out. I’ll wait till I get the Pakistan or Thai mangoes from the Asian supermarket in FFM to try it out. It does look so fab!
