This popular fresh Korean green onion salad recipe is very easy to make and you only need six ingredients. Eat this salad as a side dish (banchan), along with some Korean BBQ, or even with our Pan-Fried Tofu recipe.
Wild green onions versus regular green onions
Wild or Korean green onions (or chives) are a little different than the traditional green onions you can find in any supermarket. These onions are a lot skinnier/thinner. These are perfect for this recipe because you usually don’t have to shred them since they’re already skinny/stringy enough. Just cutting these wild or Korean green onions into about an inch in length will be all that you need to do to prep them for this salad recipe.
If you can’t find wild, or Korean green onions in the Asian markets, you can also shred up some regular green onions. This dish is so popular in Korea that there is even a tool that can help you quickly shred green onions. Here’s an example of the tool I’m talking about that will help you quickly shred green onions:
Serve this salad with freshly steamed white rice and/or eat this salad alongside our pan-fried tofu recipe. Yum!
