Today I’m sharing a popular Korean appetizer called “bibim mandu” (비빔만두) aka Korean potsticker salad.

What is Bibim Mandu

The direct translation of bibim mandu is “mixed dumplings” or “mixed potstickers”. (Much like the famous Korean bibimbap is “mixed rice”)

Essentially, the pan fried potstickers are mixed with salad and specially made mandu bibim sauce.

This Korean potsticker salad is one of my favorite Korean dishes because it has everything I like.

The texture is crunchy (from the salad and pan fried potstickers) and they are coated with super addictive sweet, tangy and spicy sauce. Who would say no to that?!

I’m pretty certain that it will blow your mind away too! 😉

What’s more, it is a perfect appetizer when you’re looking for a quick and easy but feel special food. So I think it will be well received as a potluck party food.

The only problem there would be, you wouldn’t want to share the food with others. Lol.

Yes, it’s that delicious! I really hope you get to try this soon. It will brighten up your day! Enjoy.

  1. I’m just learning to cook and I really enjoyed this recipe. It’s easy, delicious, and very filling. Thank you so much for sharing! I definitely plan to make this again 🙂

  2. Love the flavors in this dish! I love mandu and tangy Korean salads. What a great combination. I’m so craving this right now! BTW, your site looks great. Hope you and your family are having a wonderful new year!

  3. I love, love mandu, and your salad looks as it sounds “DELICIOUS” !!!! Spicy, tangy and sweet dressing …mmmm so want this tomorrow for my lunch!
    Since I haven’t officially said it on your site, let me say it now “I wish you and your family wonderful New Year, Sue!” xo

  4. This dumpling salad (so original by the way!) looks so delicious! I don’t speak Korean, but when I read “bibim” I thought about “bibimbap” and looked up to see it means “mixed rice”. Thanks to you I progress slowly in the Korean food vocabulary 🙂 (It will be handy when I finally go to Korea!). Anyway, going back to this delicious salad, I would love it even without dumplings, but with them it must be a wonderful, healthy rich meal. Now that I think, I once made mandu…. but it was such a long time ago. I must start making them once more!

    • Hehehe Sissi, you’re funny. 🙂 I think you’ll be fine ordering some Korean food in Korean when you visit Korea next time. I made mandu from scratch so long ago myself too! Thankfully there’s always packaged version to save some time. 😉
