While I was looking for recipes with kimchi I came across My Korean Kitchen which is a great site with a lot of good looking Korean recipes. The first dish that caught my attention was this one for soba and kimchi salad. This salad is really good! I have already had it twice! The noodles in the salad are served cold and the kimchi and the dressing add a spicy heat making this a perfect summer dish. The salad has a nice mixture of textures from the soft and chewy noodles to the crisp and crunchy carrots and cucumbers.
1 serving soba noodles
2 leaves of lettuce (thinly sliced)
1 leaf of red cabbage (thinly sliced)
