Get a pot of hot water going and then add your buckwheat noodles and boil it according to the instructions. It usually ends up being about 5-10 minutes of boiling time.

Then rinse your noodles under cold water and set aside.

Just use a mandolin to slice all your vegetables. Left to right: Asian pear, cucumber, carrot, onion.

Perilla leaves and red cabbage.

Sliced red leaf lettuce.

Now we are going to start assembly. Start off getting a fairly large plate and centering about 2 cups of noodles into the middle.

Add some thinly cut dried seaweed (seasoned) place it in the middle.

Add the vegetables on opposite ends like this. You will be using two small bunches of each vegetable.

Just keep going...

Then go to the fridge and grab the sauce mixture and add as much as your tastebuds can handle. YUMMY!

Mix it around thoroughly and you're ready to eat!

  5. I was just wondering which brand of mandolin you use. I'm always admiring how your veggies look so perfectly cut (mine never look like that). I can't seem to get those results from my mandolin. :( I made this dish last night, and it was really good! My hubby LOVED it and even had seconds!
