Hey everyone. On this episode, we’re going to be making Salad Udon. Salad udon is cold udon noodles served with salad. Its really easy to prepare and if you keep this bento with an ice pack to keep it cool, it will be a nice refreshing lunch in the summer. This recipe is inspired by the recipe book “Kihon no Obento 300Sen”

4. Move the udon to a sieve and put it through cold water to remove the heat and sliminess.
