Summer Soba Noodle Salad

This salad is so simple to make and is the perfect addition to your next picnic or summer potluck. This recipe uses a bagged broccoli slaw available at most grocery stores, but you could also make your own slaw with whatever veggies you like.

Prep Time: 10 minutes 


  • Broccoli slaw (one bag, pre-washed)
  • Soba noodles (two bundles)
  • Umami Bomb
  • Sesame seeds (optional)
  • Chopped cashews (optional)
  • Sliced scallions (optional)
  • Umami Bomb


  1. Cook the soba noodles according to the instructions on the package (they usually take 6-7 minutes to cook).
  2. Rinse the cooked soba noodles in cold water and drain thoroughly.
  3. Combine the noodles and the broccoli slaw.     
  4. Add a generous couple of tablespoons of Umami Bomb and toss together.  


Dress the salad according to your taste. Some people may like more or less Umami Bomb to sauce it up and optional tasty garnishes include sesame seeds, scallions, and cashews.
