This spinach salad is a classic Korean dish, and pretty much all the Korean restaurants offer it for free when you order other foods.

It was super easy to make, and it tasted delicious. I loved the flavor from the soy bean paste (miso paste) and Korean chili paste, tangy and flavorful.

This salad goes well with all the Korean dishes or any BBQ or roast.
