|Spicy Pesto Soba|
The Japanese considered soba noodles a tonic for the body. Toss them with a fresh herb pesto of garlic, fresh basil and mint and they become a superb restorative.Rice Wine Dressing
1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the snow peas and blanch for 10 seconds. Drain, refresh in cold water and drain again. Blot dry with paper towels.
2. In a bowl, toss together the noodles and the spicy pesto. Arrange the noodles on a platter and arrange the snow peas, chicken, and scallions in concentric circles on top with the chicken and scallions in the center. Serve the dressing on the side or sprinkle the dressing on top and toss lightly.
