  1. Boil water for the soba.  Cook according to package instructions.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the peanut butter, tahini, water (or chicken broth), soy sauce, sesame oil, and garlic. Cook, stirring frequently until the mixture is smooth, about 5 minutes.  Turn off the heat and stir in the cider vinegar, honey, and vegetable oil.
  3. Pour into a large serving bowl, and mix with the drained soba. Top with sesame seeds, scallions, and cucumbers.  Serve immediately or let cool in the refrigerator and serve cold.

If you cannot find soba, you can also use whole wheat spaghettini or spaghettini.
