Veggie Prep

  • Wash all your veggies. Put them in a salad spinner or let them drip off excess water.

  • Cut lettuce into thin bite-sized sections.

Make Salad

  • Pour in about 75% of the gochujang salad sauce over the mixed greens. Give it a toss and sample it. Add more sauce if you need (I ended up using all of it). Garnish with sesame seeds.
  • Cook your dumplings. Make them extra crispy :)
  • Time to plate: Place a scoop of salad into the middle of the plate. Then arrange dumplings around the salad. 
  • Bon Appetit!
