Cold Soba Salad with Dried Shiitake Dressing
This sweet and savory Japanese-style cold noodle salad is an easy dish to serve to a crowd, since it's delicious chilled or at room temperature. Use preshredded carrots in place of julienned to make it even more quickly.
The salad can stand at room temperature for up to 3 hours. The dressing can be refrigerated for up to 2 days.
Pickled daikon radishes are available at Japanese and Korean markets. Any pickled radish is a good substitute.
