Bok Choy Crunch Salad (Asian Delight)

This salad is the best I’ve ever had, hands down!  everyone loves it, and you should try it too. You might think that raw baby bok choy would make the salad taste bitter, but the dressing makes it yummy.

The bok choy salad is light, refreshing, and full of good stuff for you. It’s made with thinly sliced baby bok choy, shredded carrots, and mildly spicy radishes, all mixed in a sesame dressing that gives it a delicious sweet and savoury flavour.

Bok choy has a mild, slightly sweet taste, like cabbage. It’s strong enough to hold up well if you want to make it ahead of time and take it for lunch. I like to serve this salad with sandwiches, veggie burgers, or a big bowl of soup.

What’s the Difference Between Big Bok Choy and Baby Bok Choy?

Big bok choy is like the grown-up version with big leaves and thick stalks. It has a stronger taste. But baby bok choy is like the little one. It’s picked early, so it’s small and has soft leaves with thin stalks. Plus, it tastes milder.

Can I Make the Salad in Advance?

It’s a good idea not to add the dressing to the salad too early because it could make the leaves soft and wet. Instead, you can get all the ingredients ready and keep them apart in the fridge. When it’s time to eat, then you can mix everything together with the dressing for a fresh taste.
