Spicy Scallion Salad

Scott Phillips

Yield: Yields 3/4 cup

Servings: 6

This salad is best dressed just before serving so the scallions retain their crunch.


  • 8 medium scallions, both white and green parts, cut into very thin 5-inch-long strips
  • 1 Tbs. Asian sesame oil
  • 2 tsp. gochugaru (Korean red chile flakes) or crushed red pepper flakes
  • Pinch kosher salt

  • Put the scallion strips in a large bowl of ice water and soak in the refrigerator for at least 5 minutes and up to 2 hours; they will curl up. When ready to serve, drain well and transfer to a medium bowl. Add the remaining ingredients, mix, and serve.

    Only ok. It was nice as part of the whole Korean BBQ menu but I probably would not make that again. It was good rolled up in a lettuce leaf with the chicken or beef, rice, and ssamjang.
