This is a popular dipping or topping sauce, particularly for pancakes and other fried foods. It can be kept refrigerated for a week or so, but the scallions quickly lose their green color unless added at the last minute.

Make   -   (10 min)
  1. Split SCALLIONS lengthwise and slice crosswise very thin.
  2. Mix All Items together in a small jar and let stand a while to mature flavors
  3. Shake Dipping Sauce vigorously and pour into bowls for serving.
NOTES:
  1. Sugar:   I have cut the amount of sugar called for by the pattern recipe to 1/3 (it actually called for honey). Other recipes vary greatly in the amount of sugar. The pattern recipe was written by a Korean lady who teaches Korean cooking in Japan, and she tends to go heavy on sugar.
  2. Chili Flake:   This should be fine Korean flake, which is only moderately hot. For details see our Chili Page.
  3. Sesame Salt:   This important seasoning is just white Sesame Seeds dry pan roasted until light golden in color, then cooled and crushed with Salt. For details see our recipe Sesame Salt page.
  4. U.S. measure: t=teaspoon, T=Tablespoon, c=cup, qt=quart, oz=ounce, #=pound, cl=clove in=inch, ar=as required tt=to taste
