This refreshing and easy to make Korean Green Salad offers the perfect balance of flavours and textures. It is typically be served with Korean-style grilled meat like bulgogi and short ribs.
This salad combines a variety of fresh greens and vegetables with a tangy and slightly spicy dressing. The base of this salad are mixed greens. The salad is then topped with thinly sliced Asian white pear, which adds a sweet and juicy element to the dish, and mini cucumbers, which offer a crisp and refreshing crunch.
To add some depth of flavour (and colour) the salad also includes thinly sliced red onion and green pepper. These vegetables provide a slightly pungent and slightly bitter flavour, which is balanced by the sweetness of the pear and the tanginess of the dressing.
The dressing offers a perfect balance of savory, sweet, and spicy flavours that complement the freshness of the salad. The salad is finished off with toasted sesame seeds, which add a nutty crunch and a beautiful visual appeal.
Makes a great side dish or a light lunch.
I served it here with my Korean-Style Barbecue Beef Short Rib Lettuce Wraps.
