Packed with flavour, this Buchu Muchim recipe makes an outstanding low-calorie side salad to any meal.
Buchu Muchim is a Korean garlic chive salad that makes a lovely, flavourful side dish. A mix of tangy and sweet, with a hit of chili heat on a base of mild, fresh garlic chives.
This simple and easy salad goes very well with any main, but particularly a lean cut of beef, pork, or chicken.
Calorie-wise this side gives a huge punch of flavour for a scant amount of calories.
Chives have a pretty short shelf life, so they are best bought within a day of making this dish.

1 teaspoon sesame oil
Place the cut and cleaned garlic chives into a salad bowl and set aside.
