Delicious! I couldn't find soba noodles so I settled for angel hair, and it worked great. I love lime and garlic so I increased it to 3 cloves, and made sure to include all the juice and zest of 1 lime despite other reviews. I also added a little more cilantro than called for. It does make a lot, but for a party I would probably double it. I only put in 1/2 tsp. of red pepper flakes, and that gave it just enough kick for me. Update- I made this again, with soba noodles found at my local grocery. They were ones made from buckwheat flour! I added a little more rice vinegar and soy sauce because I remembered it needed more moisture last time, but the soba noodles don't absorb as much as the angel hair, so there was too much liquid. It is still delicious though! I added some green onion this time too, and omitted the nuts.
The combination of ingredients sounded good. The initial taste was okay, but I found the recipe to be a little too tart. Since my husband does not care for soba noodles, I tried substituting the soba with ramen. Unfortunately, the noodles became mushy and tasteless. Sorry not a keeper.
