Cold Soba with Thai Basil Pesto


Soba with Thai Basil Pesto

I adore cold soba, and every time I shop at Daiso (only the best Japanese $2 store in the world), I go a bit overboard with buying every brand of soba available.  Generally, I have been using the noodles to add some carb-y substance to my salads; this Soba Salad recipe my mom makes is one of my favorites.  Most recently, I discovered another great cold soba recipe when I randomly made a batch of Thai Basil Pesto.  I simply tossed some cold soba with the pesto and fresh cherry tomatoes and the results were so refreshingly light and flavorful.

This zesty Asian-influenced pesto pasta is a great snack or side dish, and a healthy break from the cheese-smothered pastas and oily fried noodles that I typically enjoy.

blend all ingredients together to form a smooth pesto

For another pesto recipe, try this Homemade Pesto with Penne Pasta.
