From the Test Kitchen

Fresh soba noodles are the star of this summer salad-—loaded with carrots, cucumbers, and tomatoes marinated in a combo of soy sauce and vinegar (which also acts as a light dressing). We’re topping each dish with a rich soft-boiled egg, crunchy peanuts, and furikake—a traditional Japanese garnish of seaweed and black and white sesame seeds.
