Broccolini and Sweet Sesame Salad Recipe

By Joanne Bruno | June 24, 2013



Nobody wants to be the hungry girl at the barbeque. As a vegetarian, this often means munching on a mediocre plate of lettuce that barely has the staying power to fuel sunbathing, let alone a round of pool volleyball. Not good.

Which is why when I’m headed to a summer fiesta, I always try to have a fabulously hefty salad in tow. My latest favorite is this broccolini and sweet sesame salad. It is chock full of green on green on green in the form of broccolini, snow peas and green beans, with some legumes added for protein and heartiness. The dressing is nutty, sweet and salty and is a nice change from the vinaigrettes that you so often see at this time of year.

Korea is well known for is their street food. Their big street stalls and food trucks offer a plethora of choices such as fried chicken feet, barbequed beef, and fried wonton dumplings. Korean street food is a perfect combination of authentic dishes that are ready-to-eat at an affordable price.

In this recipe we’re combining one of everyone’s favorite street food, the taco, with more Korean-style flavors. We replaced the regular taco tortilla and instead use fried Wonton skins as the “shell.” The sweet Napa slaw adds a hint of sweetness to the spicy Korean pork filling. The crunchy Wonton skin, the spicy Korean pork, and the sweet Napa slaw make for a perfect combination for a street food you can make right at home. Read More
