When I was a child, eating out wasn’t as popular as today in Korea. We went to a restaurant for special days, birthdays or anniversaries. The choices were mostly BBQ restaurants at the time. When we had a BBQ at home, my mum didn’t make any extras, so, the only chance to eat things like spring onion salads was when we ate out.

Spring onion salads are sweet, fresh and crispy and the taste with meat is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! I personally love spring onion salads so much that I often eat more salad than meat. Usually you can get as much spring onion salad as you like without extra charge in Korea.

KOREAN BBQ SAMGYEOPSAL

We are lucky to live in a house with a garden in England (I used to live in an apartment in Korea), so, we have barbeques quite often in summer if it doesn’t rain…. British people usually grill sausages, hamburgers and kebabs for a BBQ, but, we usually have Korean BBQ such as samgyeopsal (belly pork), galbi, pork shoulder, etc…

It rains often in Britain. So, when it does, we break out our Korean BBQ Grill and on a camping stove, cook and eat our BBQ at our dining table. It is great and I feel like I am at a Korean BBQ restaurant. It is always worth the extra effort to make a spring onion salad to go with your grilled meat, ssamjang and sesame oil dipping sauce. With this combination you will be in Korean BBQ heaven!

Some Korean restaurants serve mild spring onion salads and others serve spicy spring onion salads. I can’t say I prefer one. I love both! My husband prefers the mild one and it is also better for kids.

Depending on your chopping skills, it can be a little time consuming to chop the spring onions. The easiest way to do it is to chop the spring onion in half lengthways, and then keep chopping each piece lengthways until you have thin strips. In Korea, there is a special gadget to chop spring onions for spring onion salads. If you practice once, you will get it. If you think the spring onions will be too overpowering, soak them in cold water for 30 minutes before mixing them with the sauce. You can also use gluten free soy sauce if you want. Enjoy!
