A sweet and spicy salad dressing with Korean ingredients!
Gochugaru and gochujang are common Korean ingredients that give any dish mega umami!
Gochugaru are Korean red chili flakes and gochujang is a fermented red chili paste.
You can use these two ingredients for a thick sauce to coat your noodles or add them to a rice dish.
For this recipe, we are using them to create a spicy and a beautifully red colored salad dressing!
This dressing pairs perfectly with my Spicy Soba Noodle Salad recipe.
