Black Bean Tuna Salad

This quick, cool summer or fall salad is very filling and suitable for a light-meal main dish.

Bada Bing Bada Banged Potatoes

Rating: 4.5 stars 306
These potatoes are easy to prepare and are a great crowd pleaser. The herbs and cheese really bump up the flavor. You can prep them ahead then finish them on the grill or oven. The name of the dish makes people laugh--until they taste them. Then all you'll here is ooo's and aaah's.

Yaki Mandu

Rating: 4.5 stars 12
Yaki Mandu is a Korean dumpling that can be steamed or fried. They look a lot like Chinese pot-stickers. Yaki means fried in Japanese and Mandu means dumpling in Korean. They're great for parties or as an appetizer. There's a lot of prep in making these and they take some time, but as quick as you can fry them they'll be gone!

Russian Carrot Salad (Korean-Style)

Rating: 4.5 stars 13
Russians call it 'Korean Carrot Salad,' but it is so absolutely ubiquitous in Russia that if they didn't originally own it, they certainly do now. Coriander provides primary flavor; cayenne provides the heat. To get it right, you MUST use a mandoline to julienne the carrots into long, thin strands like spaghetti. To save time, buy them already julienned at the grocery store. This dish is best after it has marinated for 24 hours, but is fine after only 4 or 5 hours.

Korean Cucumber Salad

Rating: 4 stars 167
