  • Wash the scallions and pat them thoroughly dry. Thinly slice them into rounds, and then use your knife to mince them further.
  • Next, slice 10 rounds of ginger very thinly. Julienne them into matchsticks and mince them finely. (These steps could be done with a food processor.)
  • Combine the scallion, ginger, oil, and salt in a bowl. Mix thoroughly, and it’s ready to serve!
  • If we are enjoying poached chicken (bai qie ji), we split it into two small bowls, and add light soy sauce to one of them to taste.
