Cold Soba Noodle Salad

Posted on

Tonight’s dinner was a make ahead because I spend Wednesday nights at the NICU. It was a meal we ate all the time last summer and I loved it. However, this time… not so much.

The problem stems from my irrational hatred of mayonnaise. Last summer I made this with soy mayo, Nayonnaise I think. The soy mayo is a bit runnier which I prefer. Tonight I made it with regular mayonnaise and it was just a giant clumpy mayonnaisy mess. Blech. Because we ate it for dinner, I bulked it up a bit more with a red bell pepper. I’ll make it again, but with the soy mayo. I just hate the texture of real mayonnaise.

The night has improved since then though. Now I’m watching Lost while drinking a Borsao blend of 75% Garnacha and Tempranillo, which is delicious and cost like $9. I also had Brent slice up a bit of Manchego to nibble on alongside. It’s a pretty great way to end the night.

The work week is more than half done!

  5. I do not think your mayo hatred is irrational at all. Mayo is disgusting. In this recipe I would just leave it out.
