Pork And Soba Noodle Salad

    Serves 4

    Prep time: 25 minutes

    Made from buckwheat flour, these Japanese-style noodles have a nutty taste and are pleasantly chewy.

  • 6 ounces soba noodles
  • 3 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 carrots, peeled and shredded
  • 1 red bell pepper, ribs and seeds removed, cut into strips
  • 3 scallions, halved lengthwise and cut into 2-inch pieces
  • Reserved cooked pork tenderloin (from Roast Pork Tenderloin With Acorn Squash )
  • Red-pepper flakes and lime wedges (optional)


1. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook noodles according to package instructions; drain.

2. In a large bowl whisk together hoisin, lime juice, and oil; season with salt and pepper. Add noodles, carrots, bell pepper, and scallions; toss.

3. Thinly slice pork; cut each slice in half crosswise. Add to bowl with noodles; toss well. Serve at room temperature or chilled; garnish with pepper flakes and lime wedges, if desired.
