Chilled Soba Noodle Salad with Cucumber and Mango - Instructions
Place vinegar, sugar, and salt in small saucepan over medium heat, stirring
occasionally until sugar dissolves, about 1 minute. Stir in garlic and chili. Cool.
Stir in lime zest, juice and sesame oil and reserve.
Cook noodles in large pot of boiling salted water until tender but still firm to bite,
stirring occasionally. Drain and rinse under cold water; drain again. Dry noodles
further with paper towels and transfer to large bowl. Add dressing and toss to coat.
At this point, the noodles can be refrigerated for up to 6 hours.
Add cucumber, mango, basil, and mint to noodles and toss gently. Adjust seasoning with
salt and freshly ground pepper if necessary. Arrange salad on platter; sprinkle with
chopped peanuts and garnish with lime wedges.
