In summer nothing could be cooler than a noodle salad version of ramen. Japanese-American Chef Kyle Itani’s ramen was inspired by Chinese chicken salad and hiyashi chuka somen, a popular summer dish of thin wheat noodles. The overall flavor of the dish is light and refreshing; Itani explains that the ingredients have complementary contrasting textures of chewy ramen noodles against sweet raw corn, crunchy sliced snap peas and gushingly ripe cherry tomatoes, with a dashi soy dressing, all combining for a harmonious bowl of noodles.
