Mint and Scallion Soba Noodles

This is a quick and light dish. I had one reservation about posting this, but I think there's enough potential in this dish to outweight the bad. The dressing for the dish is not quite right, so make sure you test it before pouring it on. I think there's a bit too much vinegar for the sugar levels. It might be helped by adding some mirin, oyster sauce, or a bit more soy or just cutting back on the rice vinegar.

Mint and Scallion Soba Noodles (from Gourmet Today)

340g soba noodles
1/3 cup rice vinegar
2 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp chili oil

1 cucumber, julienned

1. Cook noodles according to package directions.
2. Meanwhile, stir together vinegar, oils, soy sauce and sugar in a small bowl.
3. Toss noodles with dressing, mint, scallions, and cucumber.
