I have one requirement for salads. It’s a simple one really. It has to knock my socks off. Hopefully, you can tell from this photo, that this salad does exactly that.

The secret is  Bibigo Go-Chu-Jang Hot & Sweet Sauce. It’s a Korean fermented red chili paste that is combined with brown sugar, soy sauce, vinegar and spices. I brushed it over grilled chicken that was marinated in a Korean honey garlic marinade. And I used the sauce to create a creamy gochujang honey dressing.

For the base of the salad, I needed lettuces with texture, so they can hold up to this bold chicken. That’s why I went with crunchy romaine and Napa cabbage. I tossed in some fresh basil to add a surprising herbaceous aroma. Instead of tomatoes, onions and cheese, this salad called for a soft, sweet ingredient – mango. Diced into even cubes, the mango refreshes your palate against the sweet heat of the gochujang sauce.
