I'm kinda proud of this one: it's pretty and involved many steps, but the result was totally worth it. Plus, I got to play with a new ingredient: sea beans!
Chilled soba noodles with blanched sea beans, local asparagus, and edamame, garnished with bacon pieces, scallions, and sesame seeds, topped with a soft boiled egg, all tossed with a black vinegar and bacon dripping vinaigrette. Served cold. Yep, it's pretty dang good.
