Teriyaki Chicken and Soba Noodle Salad

Hello everyone! I had a great weekend consisting of mostly netflix, crochet, and wearing the same pj's for two days. I hope you had an equally relaxing time! Today I am sharing a really fresh, flavorful, and easy teriyaki chicken and soba noodle salad. This was my lunch today, and it was so yummy. It was fresh and light while still packing so much flavor and filling me right up.  I even had so many leftovers that Mike and I will be able to have it for lunch the next few days (it tastes great cold!). Let's dive in!

4. Boil noodles in slated water, and drain. Don't rinse because the noodle will absorb the dressing the best when they are warm.

5. Toss the noodles and veggies in the dressing, mix them well
