Soba Noodles with Teriyaki Meatballs

Soba Noodles with Teriyaki Meatballs

This is one of those “I can be anything you want me to be” recipes. Skip the teriyaki meatballs and it’s a wonderful Asian noodle salad; served hot, cold or in-between.

Or add the meatballs–the meatballs are a wonderful addition to the noodles and incorporate many of the same seasonings as the noodle dish. Put them in, or leave them out. I put them in because I had leftovers from yesterday.

I prefer the fresh flavor of this quickly assembled dressing. To save a few minutes, you could skip the last 7 ingredients and substitute with a bottled Asian dressing, such as Soy Vay Veri Teriyaki or Annie’s Asian Sesame Dressing, to taste.
