A few somen salad ingredient tips: Somen is a type of skinny noodles that looks similar to angel hair pasta. because somen is really thin, it cooks fast, so err on the almost underdone side. I like to rinse it in cold water so that the cooking stops, plus the noodles are less likely to clump up together.
Presentation: there are two ways I typically present somen salad. option #1 like you see here: you can place the noodles in a dish (usually a roasting pan), layer over the toppings, and pour the dressing over. I like this layering method when I’m bringing it to a potluck or gathering. option #2, say if you’re having dinner at home or cooking for the family: you can toss everything together. it’s faster and equally as tasty.
Mix all of the dressing and ingredients in a jar.
Toss the salad ingredients together. Add as much salad dressing as you like and toss to coat.
