Soba Noodle Salad

My goal was to try buckwheat soba noodles in some type of cold noodle salad. I found 4 different recipes on various sites, and used aspects of each one to make this dish. The ‘recipe combining’ method usually works well for me, but this time it did not. The noodles were too dry, and the salad lacked flavor. I even let it sit overnight so the flavors would meld, and that didn’t help. Next time I try a noodle salad, I will stick to just one of the recipes and see what happens.

1 12oz. package buckwheat soba noodles, cooked according to package directions and rinsed with cold water
1 lb. chicken, cooked, cooled, and diced
1 bunch scallions, sliced thinly
1 cucumber, seeded and diced
2 T rice wine
2 T soy sauce
1/2 t sesame oil
1 T minced garlic
1 T lime juice
2 T oyster sauce
cayenne pepper to taste

Mix noodles, chicken, scallions, and cucumber in a bowl. Mix rice wine through cayenne pepper in a small bowl, and then toss with noodles.

*To those who noticed, there have been a few small glitches in my posts the past two days. Due to my error, they were published before I was finished! Sorry about that.
