Bok Choy Salad


i have a recipe to share for the delicious baby bok choi - this recipe might be a mainstay in many folks'  repertoires, but, if not . . . here it is; it's a crowd pleaser and every time i serve this, or take it to a pot luck, i alway receive requests for the rundown.

i pulled it off the internet a couple years ago and have modified some of the ingredients - creative cooks can substitute honey or agave for the sugar measurement, and i'm sure that there are other things that could be added with success (fruit, other nuts, cranberries, apple slices, maybe peaches, when in season).

Bok choi salad

Salad:
•       1 large, or 2 small, bok choi, washed and chopped in bite size pieces – include bulb and leaf (rinse well after chopping)
•       Three scallions, sliced in small rings – include bulb and green shoot

Combine choi and scallions in a large bowl

Topping:
Tip: after prepping this nut/noodle topping, keep it in a bowl to one side for individual servings; over a few hours, the nuts/noodles will wilt from the moisture in the greens
•       1 cup sliced or chopped almonds
•       1 packet Ramen noodles - discard ‘flavor packet’- crunched in small pieces
•       1 tablespoon of butter (optional)

Spread nuts, crunched noodles (and butter() on a baking sheet and broil (or bake), for a few minutes, until lightly toasted and crunchy - KEEP AN EYE ON IT, toasting can quickly lead to burning (i speak from experience)

Dressing:
Tip: mix, shake, and store the dressing in a small lidded jam jar – for ease in traveling to a pot luck, or for re-use tomorrow
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons of soy sauce (i use organic tamari - low sodium - less 'inky' and less salty than usual brands)

serve salad in a big bowl with nut/noodle mix and dressing on the side, unless you expect a greens-appreciative crowd (in which case you can drizzle the dressing on the salad mix and add the topping just before serving).
