Bok Choy Salad 8-18-14
I went to the market with the intention of getting cabbage and found "Bok Choy".
*Bok Choy is a type of Chinese cabbage. Chinensis varieties do not form heads and have green leaf blades with lighter bulbous bottoms instead, forming a cluster reminiscent of mustard greens.
I have never used it before, but I love creating new things. I decided to make a salad and share it with you.
Bok Chok Salad
Bok Choy (Use the whole stalk. Wash and cut into shreds.)
1 Bell pepper (Washed + cut into strips)
1 Large carrot (Washed + grated)
1 Small red onion, sliced
1 Small white onion, sliced
1 Scallion stalk
1 Bunch cilantro, minced
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
1 tbsp agave
1 clove garlic minced
1 scotch bonnet pepper minced, no seeds (OPTIONAL)
Add all the veggies into a bowl and mix well. In a blender mix the ingredients for the dressing and blend till smooth. Strain and pour over the salad. Mix and refrigerate.
The dressing will soften the boy choy, which can be hard to eat raw.
I like my salad with a little heat, but you can have it with out.
Try it and let me know what you think
