Wow, this is my 200th post! So what did I have for dinner to celebrate?
It was a warm and summery day, so I made a fresh Japanese noodle salad which I haven't made since last summer. I've changed it quite a bit from the Australian Women's Weekly Japanese cookbook so I feel I can include the recipe:
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup rice vinegar
2 teaspoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
250 g buckwheat noodles, boiled then drained and rinsed with cool water
250 g green beans, cooked with the noodles
2 red capsicum, sliced thinly
~300g pre-packaged marinated tofu (today, the tofu had some chopped vegies in it)
chopped spring onions
Toss together and serve cold, with more ginger and spring onions for sprinkling on top.
