Simple & Bright Bok Choy Salad

Simple & Bright Bok Choy Salad
If you planted a winter garden, I hope so included some bok choy! It’s ready now, so pick it (or pick it up at your local farmer’s market). I love bok choy in an easy weeknight stir fry, and I especially love it braised so it’s a bit creamy. But bok choy is also delicious eaten raw! Just chop it up and toss it with a dressing that has some sweetness to cut any bitterness in the leaves. Add some nuts or seeds for crunch, and you’ve got a light, delicious lunch. Get the dressing recipe for our Simple & Bright Bok Choy salad after the jump… (more…)
