Summer Soba Salad

Soba Salad 4

I went blueberry picking (again) on Saturday.   Surprise, surprise.

As I picked, I ate some blueberries and listened to the newest episode of the Joy the Baker podcast. And then ate some more blueberries.  I just couldn’t resist the perfectly ripe babies.

12.6 pounds of blueberries and two podcasts later, I lugged my treasure to the car, my skirt sticking to my legs from the heat and humidity. I headed to the grocery store with one goal in mind: a cold, refreshing soba noodle salad.

I never would have thought of it if I hadn’t listened to the podcast. I don’t think I had ever even had soba noodles before.  And now I’m a total soba noodle convert.

That’s it.  Easy-peasy, with minimal time spent at the stove.
