Sweet and Spicy Korean Dumpling Salad (Bibim Mandu) | MyKoreanKitchen.com

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.
