    Korean Chilled Radish Salad (Mu Saengch'ae)

    1 pound of Korean Radish, peeled and cut into long matchsticks. Daikon Radish may be used, but the sweet and peppery Korean Radish is preferred.
    1 Korean or Asian Pear, cored, peeled and cut into matchsticks, or a tbsp of freshly squeezed Lemon juice.
    1/2 cup shucked fresh Oysters (optional)
    1 tbsp hot Red Pepper powder (gochu Garu)
    1/2 tbsp salted shrimp (Saeu Chot), or salted anchovy (Myolch'i Chot... tinned Anchovies may be substituted)
    1/2 tbsp soy sauce
    3 tbsp rice vinegar or distilled white vinegar
    1 tbsp rice wine or vermouth
    1 tbsp sugar
    1 clove garlic, crushed and finely chopped
    2 tbsp finely chopped walnuts
    1 tbsp ginger, peeled and finely minced
    2 tbsp dark sesame oil
    3 scallions (white and pale green parts only), finely chopped
    1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds
    a pinch each of salt and freshly ground black pepper

    Mix ingredients well, reserving some of the sesame seeds and chopped scallion for a garnish. Refrigerate 2-3 hours until well chilled. Transfer to serving dish and garnish.
    This dish is like a sweet and peppery slaw, and goes particularly well with Bulgogi... thin-sliced, marinated grilled beef
