    This salad is perfect to throw together a day or two after Thanksgiving and then store in the fridge until you're ready to enjoy a meal. Tangy ginger dressing, chilled noodles and delicate yet flavorful alliums and veggies give traditional roasted turkey a new life. 

    Preparation

    For the dressing:

    In a bowl, mix together all of the ingredients and set aside. If not using right away, refrigerate. 

    To make the salad:

    1.

    Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add oil to the water and then add soba noodles. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes until tender, drain well and rinse with warm water. 

    2.

    In a large salad bowl, add drained soba noodles, turkey, celery, cabbage, carrot, snow peas and the dressing.

    3.

    Toss well and serve immediately. Garnish with cilantro, green onions and black sesame.
