This salad is made with a popular Korean green called crown daisy (sukkgat) also known as chrysanthemum leaves .Crown daisy leaves have a hearty texture but a mild flavor and are eaten throughout Asia and parts of the Mediterranean.The leaves have been used in folk medicine as a tonic for the liver,blood,and intestines and to control anemia and high blood pressure.You could substitute any lettuce or greens of your choice in this recipe.I find that 2 teaspoons of Asian fish sauce makes an acceptable substitute for the anchovy if not available.

Ingredients Nutrition
