This was originally supposed to be a soba noodle salad.
The other day at work, I got really fixated on making one. I just knew it would be perfect with the various leftover veggies lurking in my crisper. I wouldn’t even have to go to the store! Major success.
Then I got home and found we had no soba noodles. Major failure.
So I went to the grocery store. AND THEY ALSO HAD NO SOBA NOODLES.
What. The. Hell.
So back home I went, dug wayyyy to the back of my (very deep) cabinet, and pulled out some ramen noodles. Cha-ching! Salads with ramen noodles are totally a thing. I know because my mom and grandma make one, and that makes them official. And also delicious. A few minutes later, I was digging into this!
