You know it’s SPRING when…

March 29, 2010

…stores are stocking up on cold ramen! That, and the weather has been warming up and those ubiquitous sakura have started blooming. But back to the noodles. Cold ramen? Yes! Usually known as Reimen or Hiyashi chuka, I dare say it is one of my favorite things about the spring and summer months! And since in Japan, foods are available seasonally, I haven’t had the pleasure of eating reimen since last September. So, when I saw the package of Goma “Sesame Seed” Dressing Salad Reimen, I just couldn’t resist! The reimen package came with the nama “raw” noodles and a packet of dressing. To make things a little more interesting, I added some sliced ham, bean sprouts, carrots, corn, a boiled egg, and green onion. I didn’t realize it until after putting on all the toppings, but I should have used a plate instead of a bowl. You can’t even see the noodles in this photo!
