Easy Beef and Brocollini Soba Noodle Salad

I know it will come a time, where I have to graduate from making soups to salads. After all, the weather is warming up lovely and salads are such a nice fresh way to enjoy summer no?

I spotted this recipe from Taste. Looking at it for inspiration, I made our own noodle dressing- with sesame seed dressing + sweet chill + sesame seeds. It provided a nutty sweetness to the beef salad. This is also my first time using Brocollini. A thin long version of broccoli. It's almost like a cross between broccoli and kai lan!

so i'm slowly getting into groove into creating more salads. Summer here we come!

Easy Beef and Brocollini Soba Noodle Salad
250 packet of soba noodles
1 bunch of brocollini trimmed
100 grams of baby spinach leaves
1 carrot shredded
1 cup of cashew nuts toasted
300 grams of beef sizzled

3 tablespoon of roasted sesame dressing (can be found at local oriental stores)
2 tablespoon of sweet chill
3 tablespoons of mirin
1 tablespoon of sesame seeds

Cook noodles till nearly done and throw in brocollini. Cook for 3 mins. Drain and rinse with cold water. Mean while sizzle steak and cut in small pieces. Toss noodles, all salad veges and beef in a big bowl.

Whisk dressing together. Pour dressing over it and mix it up. Crunch it up with cashews. Serve

looks like a delicious and healthy one-dish meal. Is brocollini in season? Hope to see them at the supermarkets here soon, would love to use them in a beef stir fry.

many times i was hoping to make a noodle salad like this. i would really like to try roasted sesame sauce one day in my noodles.

I try every year to eat soup through the summer but there comes a time when no one wants to read about it! So yes, the transition is necessary lol. This salad looks so delicious! Love the sound of the sauce for it!

I love the use of sesame dressing. that is something I need to try and it could be so versatile. Like you think I could use it over a simple stir fry or as a dipping sauce to spring rolls or something?
