Soba noodles are a versatile staple with a deliciously nutty flavor that works well in hot soups, stir-fries, and cold appetizers. Usually, they are served cold with a smoky soy dashi broth and wasabi, but here they’re tossed with a spicy, fresh basil pesto and used as a base for a shredded chicken and snow pea salad, topped with a piquant dressing for an easy, meal-in-one dish.
Substitute cooked shrimp, pork, or flavored tofu for the chicken. You can also replace the snow or snap peas with 2-1/2 cups shredded carrots, bean sprouts, or other sliced vegetables.

Loved this recipe, even my husband who is generally very fussy loved it. Two things I will change next time... less garlic and cut the dressing down by half.
This was excellent. We ate it warm for dinner last night and then cold for lunch this morning. Very tasty either way
