I am so excited to share this salad with you today.  I know you’re thinking “it’s really difficult to get excited about bok choy salad”. Before this salad, I was right there with you.  Not any more, my friends, not any more.

My last co-op distribution I received 2 baskets, including 8 heads of baby bok choy. Score.  Zero sadness on my part because I knew exactly how I would be using these awesome veggies.  Hello Bok Choy Salad.  The bok choy, carrots, green onion, almonds and chow mein noodles all contribute to the heartiness.  You won’t believe the crunch this salad packs.  This is not your average wimpy salad.

While I’ve been enjoying Bok Choy Salad for a few years, the perfect salad dressing was more elusive.  That problem has (finally!) been solved.  Ginger Sesame Soy Dressing is a savory, tangy, Asian flavored dressing that perfectly complements the crunchy greens.  If you find this dressing is a bit too tart or tangy for your tastes, feel free to increase the sugar a little.

Sadly, I am down to the last bowlful of Bok Choy Salad.  Yes, 8 heads of baby bok choy gone (GONE!) in less than 2 weeks.  I told you this salad was amazing!  The last little bowl is safely tucked away (hidden, if I’m being honest) in the back of the frig.  Hopefully I’ll get to it before The Girl discovers it.  She loves this salad as much as I do.

Add the shredded chicken to Bok Choy Salad with Ginger Sesame Soy Dressing and you have a quick, healthy dinner.  And 15 minutes to the table?  That’s a win! Serve with a slice of warm bread and fruit to round out your meal.  Happy Eating!

BOK CHOY SALAD WITH GINGER SESAME SOY DRESSING

SALAD INGREDIENTS:

5 cups bok choy leaves & stems, cleaned & sliced thin
1/2 cup carrots, shredded
2 green onions (whites & green stems), chopped
1 cup cooked chicken, shredded, optional
1/4 cup almonds, chopped roughly, optional
1/2 cup chow mein noodles, optional

GINGER SESAME SOY DRESSING INGREDIENTS:

2 Tbsp. rice wine vinegar
2 Tbsp. reduced sodium soy sauce
1 tsp. ginger, minced
1 1/2 tsp. sugar (more to taste)
1/2 tsp. sesame oil
1/2 cup oil (I use sunflower oil)

INSTRUCTIONS:

1.  To make the dressing, combine everything except the 1/2 cup oil in a jar or bowl, and give it a quick stir to mix.  While whisking or blending, slowly add the oil to the vinegar mixture and mix until blended.  I like to use my immersion blender when making salad dressings.

2.  Combine first 3 salad ingredients in a large bowl and toss to combine.

3.  I like to serve this salad as a “Make Your Own” family dinner, allowing each person to add chicken, almonds and chow mein noodles if desired.

4.  Omit the chicken if you prefer to serve as a side dish.
