Asian Noodle Salad

The summer I was in grad school, I needed lunches that tasted good cold. I went on a mission to find and create delicious recipes that could keep me going through the day. One recipe I came up with was Asian Noodle Salad.

Cook for 1 and a half more minutes. Drain and run cold water over the soba and vegetables. Transfer to a bowl, and add enough sauce to cover the soba and vegetables.
