Warm Soba Noodle & Sauteed Cabbage Salad (with pears from our pear trees!)

Lunch today was spontaneous, quick, and good.  If you like the delicious Asian combination of sweet, salty, spicy, sour, and bitter - and you want something healthy and easy - then try this dish, or a version of it.  It's, as usual, about using what you have in your kitchen.

My version today was the following:

1. leftover cooked soba noodles (these are made from organic buckwheat and water, nothing else)
2. baby cabbage, shredded and quickly wilted in a hot pan with a few drops of shoyu, mirin, sesame oil, red pepper flakes, garlic, and yellow raisins
3. big green pear, peeled-cored-chopped
4. toasted slivered almonds
5. dressing of miso, peanut butter, orange juice (only cuz we had no limes or lemons), shoyu, brown rice vinegar, and mirin, whisked til smooth.
