This recipe is perfect just the way it is. I don't think the zest or the lime juice needed to be adjusted and I had a rather large lime. Whole foods has 100% whole buckwheat Soba noodles in 8 oz. bags and I used two of those. Since I like very robust flavors and after reading many reviewer comments, here is what I added: small chopped pieces of 1/2 of a large red bell pepper, 3/4 cup edamame, 3 green scallions, 8 sliced snow peas, 1 Tbsp. toasted sesame seeds, 2 additional cloves of garlic, 1 tsp. crushed ginger, 1 whole fresh jalapeno pepper diced very small seeds and all. When it came to the sesame oil, I used 1 Tbsp. sesame and 1/2 Tbsp. hot chili oil. I forgot my nuts, but honestly after eating it, I didn't see how it was going to enhance my particular concoction. I had every intention and purchased cashews for the purpose. Oh well. This is a great salad as is or with your adds. I think the dressing amount is spot on as my Soba noodles and all the ingredients get completely coated. (I'm eating it as I write this.) Oh, I forgot, I did sub honey for the brown sugar as I was out. The bonus of this salad is that it's super healthy as well, especially if you are using the 100% buckwheat Soba noodles. Thanks Christiana Heins for posting it!
