Jaengban Gooksoo

FYI, there's an updated version of this recipe that's a little prettier and easier to follow, if you're interested.

Jaengban gooksoo (tray noodles?) are one of my favorite summery dishes but during the holiday season, we'll get Korean pears from everyone (every Korean person) who visits our home so I'll make it in the winter too.

1 serving soba noodles (the soba noodles I buy usually are wrapped up in individual portions with paper and tape)
1 cup mixed baby greens
1 cup chopped romaine lettuce
1/2 bell pepper (I used yellow for the color), cut into bite sized pieces
1/2 Asian pear (or apple), cut into bite sized pieces
1 kirby cucumber, cut into bite sized pieces

** You can omit ingredients you don't like or add more vegetables (such as carrots or red onion) and you could add a protein, like hard boiled egg, diced chicken, shrimp, the sky is the limit.

DRESSING:
2 tablespoons Korean hot pepper paste (if you want a spicy dressing) or 1 tablespoon soy sauce (if you want a non-spicy dressing)
few drops sesame oil
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar

Cook noodles, drain, rinse in cold water, and drain again. Toss immediately to prevent noodles from getting gummy. Serve and enjoy!
