Notes on Korean Garlic Chive Salad

  • The taste is strong, so, be careful with that.
  • Korean Garlic Chives, Buchu, differ from Western chives and taste like a combination of garlic and chives. If Korean garlic chives are unavailable in your area you could use a combination of thinly sliced scallions, onions, and chives.
