Japanese Soba Salad Dressing Recipe

If you're a fan of Japanese sesame salad dressing, then you'll definitely love our nutty and creamy soba salad dressing recipe made with Sobacha buckwheat tea! This soba salad dressing has a nutty, creamy, and tangy flavor that pairs well with any vegetables.

Moreover, naturally fragrant with a subtle sweetness, Sobacha buckwheat tea is a popular gluten-free, caffeine-free herbal tea with plenty of health benefits. In particular, Dattan soba is especially healthy since this type of sobacha contains 100 times the amount of rutin compared to common buckwheat. Studies have found that rutin offers anti-inflammatory properties that may alleviate swelling and cases of arthritis. Additionally, after drinking soba tea, consider eating the kernels or using them in this soba salad dressing recipe to take advantage of all the nutrients from this delicious tea.

This recipe can be made with our Sobacha Aiji as is or after brewing. Just make sure that the kernels are as dry as possible. Enjoy our sobacha salad dressing recipe on your salads or favorite vegetables!
