Summer Dishes

Dinner: Mizuna, mountain greens and soba salad

I made a soba salad for dinner last week. The salad consisted of cold soba, mizuna, mountain vegetables, and a sesame and soy-sauce dressing. Then I topped it off with a poached quail egg. It was pretty simple and refreshing, but I made the dressing a bit too salty.

The BF and I went to the Hollywood farmer’s market on Sunday to take advantage of tomato season. We bought tomatoes, some weird red bell pepper, some hot red peppers, and cucumbers. Luckily, we had some stale bread around because it came in handy for our gazpacho. I think I was over-zealous with the garlic because the soup came out really garlicky, but hey, I love garlic.

Since the hot red peppers were more spicy than we imagined, I only used one, which means I have two left. I’m thinking about making it into some home-made hot sauce.
