Vegan Mofo #15 Korean Kimchi Scallion Lettuce Salad

So Fresh, Clean, and Exciting!!!

Let’s here it for salad. Yes, a good ‘ole typical green salad with a twist.

I love salad. It’s one of those meals where you can pull together any kind of vegetable and create a meal whether it be for lunch or dinner.

I also love Korean food. As a vegan, a lot traditional Korean meals aren’t vegan, although some of their vegetable sides (banchan) are vegan. Plus when you go to a really good Korean restaurant that search banchan before your main dish comes, you can try a little of everything and they will refill the banchan. It’s that cool?!

I created this recipes when I decided that I wanted a salad for a quick meal. When I opened the refrigerator door, my kimchi stared back at me and the creation of this dish was born. Have fun. Be creative.
