Soba Noodles with Gingered-Sesame Dressing Recipe

Soba Noodles with Gingered-Sesame Dressing Recipe

We love when opposites attract. A sweet and sour gingery dressing goes hand in hand with soft Soba noodles, edamame and crunchy slaw. Add grilled shrimp or chicken for a protein-packed finish. —Mandy Rivers, Lexington, South Carolina
