A Little Spice for Game Day

January 25, 2014

Lately I've been binge watching Friday Night Lights on Netflix, which doesn't make much sense since I don't like football and I never had much school spirit back in the day. Nevertheless, I'm totally loving the Dillon Panthers. This is the most football action I've seen since last year's Super Bowl.

And speaking of the Super Bowl (how's that for a segue), here's a dip that my family munches on at all times of the year that is perfect with veggies.

Ssamjang is most present when eaten with Korean BBQ. It's the sauce that you place on top of the meat when wrapped in lettuce. It's a little fermenty stinky, salty, spicy and oh-so-delicious.
Three ingredients is all you need. So if you happen to have these Korean sauces in your fridge, whip some up for a snack or enjoy while watching the Big Game this year. (The sauces may be available in the Asian food aisle at your local grocery store).

1. Combine the ingredients together and serve with your favorite vegetables--preferably cucumber, bell pepper and radishes (contrary to the picture above, don't eat with cherry tomatoes. just didn't gel well together).
2. Enjoy!
