Spinach carrot salad

This Korean style side dish is pretty quick and easy to make. I first had this in my friend's house and loved it. The best thing about this salad is it is pretty customizable. The main ingredient in this traditional Korean recipe is spinach, a great source of iron. I add carrot as well for more iron absorption. Moreover, soya sauce present helps enhances iron absorption as well.
