Cook the soba noodles in boiling water. Once they are al dente drain and refresh under cold water. Lightly oil with some sesame oil and set aside.
In a bowl toss the smoked salmon with the rest of the ingredients (excluding the noodles and garlic chips) and dress with the ponzu.
Place the noodles in a rustic pile on the plate. Over the top of this layer up the salad and then garnish with the garlic chips.
Serve with a crisp white wine and enjoy in the sun!
