Total Time:
30 mins


  • 1/3 cup canola oil

  • 3 tablespoons unseasoned rice vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons light yellow miso

  • 1 tablespoon minced peeled fresh ginger

  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil

  • 1 tablespoon honey

  • 2 teaspoons finely grated lime zest

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

  • Kosher salt

  • 2 pints cherry tomatoes

  • 8 ounces soba noodles

  • 4 scallions, thinly sliced

  • 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.
