MuNaMul (나물) is an easy and delicious non-spicy Korean side dish using radish. Before, I posted the spicy radish side dish MuSaengChae. Simple seasonings such as garlic, salt, and sesame oil bring out the radish flavor, and it has good texture. You can use this side dish for your bibimbab also. Thanks! 🙂
