    Craisins® Original Dried Cranberries

Steps

Bring a large pot of salted water to boil and cook the soba noodles until al dente, according to package directions (usually 3 to 4 minutes). Drain and rinse under cold water. Transfer to a large mixing bowl and set aside. Peel, cut the cucumber into 3-inch long pieces, and finely julienne. In a small bowl, whisk together the tahini, rice vinegar, ginger, soy sauce, sesame oil, herbs (save a few a tablespoons for garnish), and red pepper flakes. Once blended, whisk in some of the water to loosen to your desired consistency. Toss the soba noodles in about ¾ of the sesame-ginger sauce. Mix in the Craisins® Dried Cranberries, cucumber, scallions, and sesame seeds. Season to taste with additional soy sauce or salt. Garnish with remaining herbs.
