Editor's Note: You'll love adding this recipe for Soy Scallion Dipping Sauce (Yangnyum Ganjang)! This recipe couldn't be easier to make, and can even be made in advance. You'll love incorporating this sauce in a number of favorite dishes, including this recipe for Korean Fried Rice (Bokkum Bap).

Salty, spicy and sour, this simple-to-make sauce enhances everything from pancakes to tofu dishes. For the freshest results, we suggest that you add the green onions (scallions) when you are ready to use the sauce. The green onions wilt and darken in color if left in the sauce for too long.
