The BBC Salad - Baby Bok Choy

Okay, any of you who got bountiful baskets last Saturday....holy Moses, I got about five thousand pounds of baby bok choy. I have never had it and had no idea what to do with it. This was all complicated by the fact that I have had no internet for almost a whole week, gasp! And that rendered me totally non functional in the kitchen.

Using the tiny screen of my iphone I was able to find just one recipe for baby bok choy, it was this yummy salad. I didn't have some of the ingredients by my modifications were awesome. I'll post them at the bottom

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 bunches baby bok choy, cleaned and sliced
  • 1 bunch green onions, chopped
  • 1/8 cup slivered almonds, toasted
  • 1/2 (6 ounce) package chow mein noodles


  1. In a glass jar with a lid, mix together olive oil, white vinegar, sugar, and soy sauce. Close the lid, and shake until well mixed.
  2. Combine the bok choy, green onions, almonds, and chow mein noodles in a salad bowl. Toss with dressing, and serve.
Okay, so here's the deal. I used rice vinegar instead of white (you should do that too!), and I had no green onions or chow mein noodles, so I substituted snap peas and diced red pepper to add the crunch, and it gave it a pretty color too.

Definitely a yummy salad. Which we will be eating every day until our ten thousand pounds of bok choy are gone.

I made this tonight and it was FANTASTIC! we got about 15 baby bok choy in our bountiful basket this week. I added mandarin oranges and i think it would be good with some grilled chicken as well. Thanks for the great recipe.
