Soba Noodle Salad

From Mark Bittman.

This is not really a recipe per se but a great way to throw together some things hanging about in your fridge. I just happened to have the ingredients that Bittman suggests and then some. Here's what I used:

1 bag shelled edamame, defrosted if frozen
3 bundles soba noodles
1 pkg baby spinach
1 small red pepper, julienned or finely diced
1 medium carrot, julienned or finely diced
1 scallion, finely diced

For the dressing:
fresh ginger, minced
miso paste
tamari
mirin
juice of one lime
toasted sesame oil
wasabi paste or chili paste, if desired
toasted sesame seeds or chopped cashews, optional

Cook noodles according to pkg directions. Whisk together ingredients for dressing in a large bowl and toss with veg. Add cooked and drained noodles and toss to coat until spinach is slightly wilted and ingredients are evenly distributed. Serve warm or cold.
