Korean Green Onion Salad


A common Korean, refreshing side dish; can also use chives in place of green onion. I make this salad often in the summer. It may seem like a lot of green onions, but green onions collapse easily, especially as soon as they come in contact with the spices. Reserve some green onion pieces to use a garnish if desired.
