  1. 1/3 cup canola oil

  2. 3 tablespoons unseasoned rice vinegar

  3. 2 tablespoons light yellow miso

  4. 1 tablespoon minced peeled fresh ginger

  5. 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil

  6. 1 tablespoon honey

  7. 2 teaspoons finely grated lime zest

  8. 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

  9. Kosher salt

  10. 2 pints cherry tomatoes

  11. 8 ounces soba noodles

  12. 4 scallions, thinly sliced

  13. 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°. In a bowl, whisk the canola oil, vinegar, miso, ginger, sesame oil, honey, lime zest and lime juice until smooth. Season with salt.
  2. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss the tomatoes with 3 tablespoons of the miso dressing and season with salt. Roast for 20 minutes, stirring, until the tomatoes are charred in spots. Scrape into a large bowl.
  3. Cook the soba in boiling water just until al dente, 4 minutes. Drain and cool under cold running water. Add the soba, scallions and half of the remaining dressing to the tomatoes and toss well. Season with salt; transfer to a platter and garnish with the sesame seeds. Serve with the remaining dressing.
Make Ahead
The tomatoes can be roasted and refrigerated overnight. Rewarm before using.
