Korean Carrot Salad

Masha R

I remember watching my dad eat this salad and it wasn't until I was fifteen that I actually tried it. Then I was hooked. Every time my mom would bring it from the Russian store I would try to hoard as much of it as I could. Nobody thinks addicted when you hear Korean Carrot Salad, but if you like umami flavours of spicy, salty, tangy this is for you! Since moving to Seattle, I don't have a Russian store nearby so making this homemade version is comforting and reminds me of casual dinners with my family.

This salad was originally created by the Koreans who came over to Russia in the late 1800s. They brought their spices and made salads with vegetables that were familiar to them from their homeland. So if you go to Korea and ask about this salad - nobody will know what it is! If you ever visit a Russian market, head to one of the Korean spice stalls and get their secret mix for this salad. The secret ingredient is coriander!

Prep time: 5m
Cooke time: 1h 15m

- 1 lb carrots, peeled into thin strips - I buy two shredded bags from Trader Joes because I'm not great at shredding and always end up grating my fingers, ugh
- 1 1/2 t sea salt
- 1 t coriander
- 1/2 t cumin
- 3 T rice wine vinegar
- 2 t honey
- 1 large garlic clove, crushed
- 1 T red chili flakes - if you don't like things as spicy, reduce the amount
2 T sunflower or grapeseed oil - if you only have olive oil that's fine; with the lighter oils it won't overpower the flavour
- 1/2 t pepper

Shred the carrots using a grater or mandolin; or buy pre shredded carrots from the store - those work too! Toss with 1 teaspoon salt and set aside for about an hour for the carrots to soften.
Mix all of the spices, vinegar, honey, garlic, and red chili flakes together. Finally, mix the oil in and adjust the taste as you see fit - more salty or tangy.
The dish tastes best if left for a few hours for the spices to marinate with the carrots. Eat with some seeded crackers or toasted rye bread! Tag us on Instagram with #amhfood to show us your Korean carrot salad!
