Korean Food: Angel Noodle Salad (천사채 샐러드)

aeriskitchen's picture
This salad is called angel noodle salad in Korea. That is an interesting name, isn’t it? I do not know exactly where the name came from, but I guess maybe the clear noodles and white mayo gives it an image of angel? Or, maybe it is because they have such a unique feeling when chewing them, that it could be compared to the unique feeling we would get meeting an angel in a dream?
Main ingredients:
  Seaweed jelly noodles 2 Cup (32 tbs) (Called "CheonSaChae")
  Carrot 1⁄8 Large, thinly sliced
  Onion 1⁄4 Large, thinly sliced
  Cucumber 1⁄3 Large, thinly sliced
  Water 3 Cup (48 tbs) (For boiling the noodles)
Seasoning ingredients:
  Mayonnaise 6 Tablespoon
  Vinegar 1 Tablespoon (Brown Rice Vinegar or Apple Vinegar)
  Sugar 2 Tablespoon
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon

1. In a pan or a large vessel boil water. Place the noodles in the water gently and cook for 15 seconds. Once cooked, drain the water.
2. Immediately place the noodles in a bowl and pour in the vinegar, sugar and salt. Mix well and set it aside for 20 minutes.
3. Take a bowl and soak the thinly sliced onions in it for about 10 minutes. This is done to take away the strong onion flavor. After 10 minutes, drain the water. If there are any left over water drops on the onion, pat it dry with a paper towel.
4. After 20 minutes of setting the marinated noodles aside, drain off any liquid in the noodles.
5. In a large bowl and combine the noodles, all the cut vegetables and mayonnaise and mix well. Add sugar. (You can adjust the quantity of sugar and mayonnaise added according to your taste).

6. Serve the delicious and healthy seaweed noodle salad with dishes of your choice.

A rather unusual name and a unique combination of ingredients. Korean noodles coated with mayonnaise doesn’t seem too Korean does it?! Well but this is a popular street food in Korea. Watch Aeri in her kitchen while she prepares this unique noodle salad made from seaweed jelly (kelp) and julienned vegetables. If you reduce the amount of mayonnaise or omit it completely, then it could be a good low calorie diet food ideal for the hot summer months. It’s a rather wonderful appetizer !
