I made this exactly as instructed without the spice. It was delicious and easy! My husband thought it needed less honey.

How long does the dressing last in the fridge if you don't use it all when making the salad?

This is wonderful as written, but if you have sesame paste, substitute it for the peanut butter & you will not be sorry! Also, I usually toss in some leftover chicken (or some poached just for this purpose) to make a more substantial meal.

This was yummy! Looking forward to eating the leftovers for lunch tomorrow.

This is delicious, and perfect picnic food! I omitted the Mirin (and forgot the crunch peanuts, shhhhh). As well, I spiralized the cucumber. Will definitely make this again (and again, and again!)

I went to high school in Taiwan, where convenience stores like 7-11 had great food (strange but true). They sold this one cold peanut noodle dish, with cucumbers and carrots, that we would buy constantly. I've been looking to recreate it as an adult in the US ever since, and this is as close as I've come! The first time I made this recipe it brought up huge sense memories, and it has been a favorite dish in rotation ever since! My parents and friends from Taiwan agree, and everyone else loves it too; I've made it for multiple book clubs and people always ask for the recipe!

This was everything I dreamed it would be with big peanutty flavor and lots of umami. I went light (about half) on the tea, and only used half of the salad dressing after reading other reviews regarding "soupiness". Also, added cilantro and julienne carrot to the mix, and substituted chard for spinach (just trying to use up produce). Seems like a fun recipe to fiddle with as long as you've made that incredible dressing. This would make a great bring-along for all those summer bbq's. Definitely giving this one a home in my recipe binder. Thanks!

This was super delicious! Made it with Braggs Liquid Aminos instead of soy sauce, for the sake of my mother not getting a migraine due to MSG/preservatives. It turned out beautifully, since Braggs tastes extremely similar to soy sauce. This dish will certainly be made again and again!

I used whole wheat spaghetti instead of Soba as I had run out. But still yummy. I omitted a few ingredients that aren't completely necessary and it's a forgiving recipe.

I just made this and it was amazing! I couldn't get spinach or scallions so I added shredded carrots and chopped red pepper. My guests asked for the recipe. Thank you!

I've been making a lot of peanut soba, but have never tried adding tea. One learns something new every day! I look forward to trying this, sounds delicious...

I have a work potluck coming up in 2 days. This sounds perfect! I wanted something savory I wouldn't have to worry about keeping warm in a slow cooker and this seems like perfect summer fair. Also, the pot luck is supposed to center on international dishes, so another plus here. Thanks for the great recipie!

2 cups of thinly sliced English or Persian cucumber! So sorry for the omission. I will add it asap.

How much cucumber is used? It's in the directions, but not listed in the ingredients.
