3. Boil the edamame in salted water for 5 min. Drain, refresh under cold water, and drain again. Shell the edamame. Boil soba noodles for 2-3 min., or until tender. Drain, refresh under cold water, and drain again. Transfer noodles to a large bowl. Add the edamame, carrots, radishes, and cucumber to noodles. Pour 1/3 cup of the vinaigrette into the bowl and toss.
