During the summer, ramen restaurants in Japan serve hiyashi chuka—cooled noodles served without a broth and paired with seasonal toppings. Here, we’re piling springy fresh noodles with a bevy of vegetables, including snappy green beans, marinated cucumber, and plump heritage globe tomatoes (which range in color from bright red to deep crimson). A quick soy and sesame sauce adds a bit of savory flavor when drizzled over the noodles—perfectly complementing rich soft-boiled eggs.

Heat a small saucepan of water to boiling on high. Fill a separate, small pot with water; add a big pinch of salt. Heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the stem ends of the green beans; halve on an angle. Cut off and discard the root ends of the scallions; thinly slice, separating the white bottoms and green tops. Quarter the tomatoes; place in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Thinly slice the cucumber into rounds. Place in a medium bowl with ⅓ of the vinegar and half the sesame oil; season with salt and pepper. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, for at least 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

While the cucumber marinates, carefully add the eggs to the small saucepan of boiling water. Cook for exactly 6 minutes. Drain thoroughly and rinse under cold water for 30 seconds to 1 minute to stop the cooking process. When cool enough to handle, carefully peel the cooked eggs. Transfer to a cutting board.
