Hiyashi Chuka – Japanese Noodle Salad

11 Mar

Spring is coming! The weather in NY has been warming up and sunny days are a motivation to eat healthier and exercising outdoors. I went for a jog today.. I am so out of shape I barely got anywhere. So I went home and made lunch. haha.

Hiyashi chuka is a cold dish served in the summer. It’s normally made with chukamen which is raw ramen noodles (not the instant kind) but I didn’t have that on hand so I used rice stick noodles. I topped it with lots of fresh veggies, some protein and finished it off with flavor boosts from scallion and sesame seeds.

Toppings: English cucumber, corn, baby carrots, shredded chicken, egg strips, red pepper, shredded nori, scallion, sesame seeds.

Dressing: 1/3 cup water / 3 Tbsp rice vinegar / 2 Tbsp soy sauce / 3 Tbsp sugar / 1 tsp sesame oil (serves 4).

Delicious and good for you! Eating a variety of colors in vegetable form gives you lots of nutrients. Cooking with Dog has a video on how to make another version of this dish. Watch it to learn how to make the egg strips.
