Recipe Notes

You can normally find Gochujang and Kewpie mayo at your local asian grocery store or on Amazon. This recipe uses the gochujang with a standard level of spice, you can buy the extra spicy one or add more of the standard one if you want a bigger kick. If the Kewpie mayo is too hard to find or outrageously expensive on amazon, you can use normal mayo but add a little splash of vinegar to the vinaigrette.

  • I'm Korean, but I'm not sure about the recipe though... Japanese Mayo sounds okay, but instead of Gochujang, I'd recommend Korean pepper powder though... Still nice recipe!
