Korean #Cucumber #Salad #(Oi #Muchim #오이무침)


Korean Cucumber Salad –  is the purely identify I might arise with in English. Funny factor is, I also had a tough time with the Korean identify too -is it Oi Muchim (오이무침) or is it Oi Saengche (오이생채)?  As you may perhaps guess, “oi”  capacity cucumber. But then the subsequent phrase comes from special origins…



So, here’s a brief Korean language lesson. Did you understand that the Korean language vocabulary is made from NULL special units of words? One that originates from the Chinese characters (한자 Hanja) which is referred to as Sino-Korean vocabulary after which one other this is “pure” Korean that originates from Korean characters referred to as Hangeul(한글). The huge King Sejong created this phonetically founded mostly Korean alphabet Hangeul in 1443 simply due to the fact Koreans have their very own spoken language but have been borrowing Chinese characters to write. “King Sejong explained that the Korean language was fundamentally special from Chinese; utilizing Chinese characters (known as hanja) to write down was so tough for the standard folks that purely privileged aristocrats (yangban, 양반) might learn and write fluently. The majority of Koreans have been with ease illiterate earlier than the invention of Hangul.”(Wikipedia) I assume that’s quite awesome.. don’t you?


So, Muchim capacity to ‘coat/toss in sauce” in natural Korean. Whereas Saengche comes from chinese language phrase 生菜 which capacity ‘live vegetables’ as hostile to dead=cooked. Haha.. Well, anyway, so my Korean cucumber salad recipe can move via both, oi muchim or oi saengche. I ought to allow you you understand that my recipe isn’t the standard Korean cucumber facet dish recipe the place it’s closely coated in yangnyeom of chili powder and garlic. Those are truly nice too but I like my Korean cucumber salad to have a lighter seasoning which permits the refreshing style of cucumbers to come through.


This Korean cucumber salad or facet dish is huge as a final minute sort of a facet dish because it takes much lower than 5 minutes to make (depends on how speedy you may cut! haha). This cucumber salad or muchim may be a huge facet dish to a BBQ or for lunch boxes. I in truth got the concept to do that submit after seeing one a current submit from a weblog I follow. She has a few truly lovely tips for dosirak or lunchboxes so examine her out!
