Recipe of The Day: Cold Somen Salad

I’m on a Asian food kick. I’ve been craving a lot of my favorite local treats. I did make a trip to the Asian store to pick some things up. One thing I do love is Cold Somen noodles. I haven’t eaten any in a long time, so I picked some up the other day. I ate some for lunch yesterday and had some today as well. Yesterday, I made a sauce that was on the back of the package. It had, chopped garlic, sesame seed oil, vinegar, sugar, and Korean Chili Paste. It was pretty tasty with a few pieces of chopped spam on top. Yum! Today, I made a different version. Here is the recipe…

Cold Somen Salad

  1. Simple but tasty. Not sure I could do it with spam, but I imagine it would be a great way to use some left over roast chicken.

  2. I am going to try this this weekend – I love noodles! Maybe with some mushrooms instead of meat.

    Yes, Chicken or Mushrooms would be good. Spam, it’s a Hawaii thing. LOL We love our Spam.
