Korean Inspired Garlic Sesame Spinach Salad


Jump to Recipe

When I was a kid, our family would always go out to eat Korean BBQ on Fridays.  My parents went for the meat of course, but my sister and I went for the sesame garlic spinach side dish.  Since they only served 1 dish per table, we used to get in fights about it, so eventually the nice waitresses there started bringing us one each!  Although I don’t have much experience cooking Korean foods, this is one dish I did learn how to cook since it was my favorite growing up!  It is very simple to make, absolutely delicious, and uses plenty of healthy spinach.  So we highly recommend trying this one next time you are looking for your vegetable fill!
