When it comes to salads I like to keep them simple. It doesn't get much simpler than this-one ingredient. I am not a fan of lettuce, namely because I feel lettuce lacks interesting taste and texture and gets soggy so quickly. I love making salads from all kinds of greens and other ingredients, making the main ingredient the inspiration. Bok or Pak Choi is such a great vegetable in my opinion, both for it's health benefits but also becasue there are 2 distinct flavours and textures in bok choi. Look for the freshest bok choi or baby bok choi you can find. I am fortunate in that a local farm here on the island where I live just started harvesting it so it was crazy fresh. My husband who is also not a lettuce fan, really loved this salad also. Trust me, give it a try, you won't regret it. It makes a great lunch salad or side salad.
