    Hello friends. Today our hero is the legendary Korean carrot. I am sure that there are almost no readers among our readers who remain indifferent to this appetizer. She became a part of our childhood and still fits perfectly into everyday and festive feasts. This appetizer is also not always prepared in the same way. Each housewife supplements the basic recipe with spices and herbs to her taste, and from this it not only changes, but changes dramatically.

    Korean carrots are often cooked with onions or celery to add spice and flavor. But about the intricacies of the recipe a little later, but for now a few words about the history of the dish.

    History of the dish:

    In the classic version, Korean carrot salad does not always involve onions. And even vice versa, initially it is just a carrot cut into thin and long strips with the addition of vegetable oil and seasonings, most often cilantro. This is how the Korean immigrants invented it, and this is how it has come down to us since 1937, the year of its birth. Today, Korean carrots are also most often found without onions, and that is why we chose such an unusual, but rest assured, a very successful combination. So, Korean carrots with onions is our recipe.
