Cos Lettuce is so good with Asian flavoured dressing. I tend to add Toban Djan (Chilli Bean Sauce) because I always have it in the fridge and I like its spiciness. If you like spicy salad, you can add Fresh Chilli, Dry Chilli Flakes, Ground Chilli, Gochujang (Korean Spicy Miso), or etc. Sushi Nori is important in this salad. Mix it in just before you eat the salad.
