    Sarah Truesdell's Note:

    This is a Siberian variation of a Korean salad (called Korean Carrot Salad in Russia). It is a spicy dish that mixes carrot and coriander for a positively addicting result.

      I lived in Central Asia for more than 20 years, where I used to by this salad from real Koreans. But this salad was not even close to the one I had in CA.

      I had this and really enjoyed it. I used my mandolin to make the carrots into a beautiful cut, and I cut the oil back to 1 1/2 tbs of sesame oil. I simply marinated the carrots in the dressing for several hours and it was a very tasty accompaniment to my Korean meal. It's also a very nice and different way to get in some carrots!

      I lived in Central Asia for years.I love this salad.I'd show how to make it in right way.This salad made by Korean peole who lives in Cenral Asia(exUSSR) 1. Use large bowl. Mix carrots with spices and add a little bit of sesame seeds and few drops of sesame oil and vinegar(use strong vinegar)and put it away for 30 min. Korean people use cotton seed oil for this salad. 2.Fryed small onion in cotton oil(after trash away this onion).Make sure oil is really hot. Pour hot oil into salad and mixed with salad(by hands).If you dont have cotton oil then use sunflower oil (dont fry onion in this case). Put salad in fridge for 2 - 4 days(put some wieght on salad to press it down) Enjoy it.
