I actually like this better with the noodles still slightly warm.

8 ounce package soba noodles, cooked and rinsed with cold water
1 large cucumber
1 tablespoon light olive oil
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds

Cut cucumber into 2" by 1/4 in strips (or close to that). Put everything in bowl with noodles and toss to combine. Top with Cilantro Sauce and scallions.

Cilantro sauce:
3/4 cup cilantro leaves
2 tablespoons nut butter
1 tablespoon lemon juice or rice vinegar pinch of salt
1/4 cup water
Put everything in food processor and process until fairly smooth.
