Make some delicious Korean green onion salad! It’s a popular Korean BBQ side dish!

Korean Spicy Green Onion Salad. This salad is the most well-known Korean BBQ salad. It pairs very well with Korean pork belly | MyKoreanKitchen.com If you like Korean BBQ, you probably have seen this Korean spicy green onion salad before. It is the most well-known Korean BBQ companion salad. Its Korean name is Pajeori (파절이), meaning “seasoned green onion”.

I love having Pajeori with Korean pork belly (Samgyeopsal, 삼겹살) as it spices up the non-marinated meat very well. You can typically buy the pre-sliced green onion, looking like the below picture, from a Korean grocery store or maybe at a Korean butcher. They use a special machine called green onion roll slicer. The green onion comes out like spaghetti noodles. Thinly sliced green onions for salad If you can’t buy the pre-sliced green onion, you have to thin slice it using your kitchen knife or a special tool like a green onion slice cutter. It can take 10 to 15 mins of slicing, depending on your knife skills.

I bought this cutter from a local Daiso store, specifically to make this salad. While there are a few drawbacks, it’s quite convenient to use. Though you need to be very careful when handling it. I found that the green side of green onion is easier to slice than the white side using this cutter.

(I made these streaks of green onion myself. It’s not as smooth as the store-bought ones but not bad. hey?)

One thing you should remember when you make this green onion salad is, you should mix the dressing with the green onion just before you’re about to eat. It wilts fast (within 3 to 5 mins). Nonetheless, it will be still delicious! I hope you enjoy my recipe. Your next Korean BBQ should be even more awesome!

P.S. Have too much green onions at hand? Then find out how to store them, so that they can last longer. (I mean like 5 to 6 weeks! & No planting is involved!)
