Serves: 1 salad
This satisfying salad is drizzled with a quick sweet and spicy dressing.
  • 7 potstickers (frozen or homemade)
  • 2 teaspoons grapeseed oil, or other neutral oil
  • ⅓ cup water
  • 2 cups baby spinach leaves
  • ¼ cup thinly sliced cucumber
  • thinly sliced red onion (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon gochujang (Korean fermented chile paste)
  • 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
  • 2-3 teaspoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • sesame seeds
  1. Drizzle the grapeseed oil into a nonstick skillet with a lid and place the potstickers on top. Add the water and bring to a boil, turn the heat down to a simmer and cover with the lid. Cook for about 7-10 minutes, or until the water has mostly evaporated, remove the lid and continue to cook until all of the water has evaporated and the potstickers crisp up and become golden brown on the bottom. Remove from the heat and arrange the potstickers over the salad and drizzle with the dressing.
  2. While the potstickers cook, assemble the salad and make the dressing. Arrange the spinach, cucumber, and red onion in a dish. Whisk the gochujang, vinegar, honey, and sesame oil together in a small bowl, taste and adjust the ingredients to your preference. Drizzle the dressing over the potstickers and salad, sprinkle with sesame seeds.
Gochujang is a funky, spicy, sweet fermented chile and soybean paste and can be found in Korean markets, most Asian markets, sometimes in well-stocked grocery stores, or, of course, online.
