It’s Hot! Let’s make Deluxe Hiyashi Chuka, a yummy cold ramen noodle salad, and cool down with this homey Japanese dish, a staple during the muggy summers in Japan.  Ramen noodles sit in a sweet and vinegary dressing with a kaleidoscope of healthy toppings.  Along with the vegetables, we will be making a delicious ginger poached chicken to shred for added protein and turn the poaching liquid (mottainai – don’t be wasteful) into a delicious kakitama-jiru – egg drop soup.  

Feel free to have as many or few toppings as you like it! Be creative!
