Baby Bok Choy Salad with Ginger Sesame Soy Dressing – this hearty salad is packed with crunchy veggies, nuts, shredded chicken & chow mein noodles.

Baby Bok Choy Salad with Ginger Sesame Soy Dressing

I am so excited to share this amazing salad recipe with you today. I know, I know!

You’re probably thinking it’s really difficult to get excited about bok choy salad.

Before this salad, I was right there with you. But not any more, my friends. Not any more.

The last co-op distribution I received 2 baskets, including 8 (yes, 8!) heads of baby bok choy. Score!

There was ZERO sadness on my part because I knew exactly how I would be using these awesome veggies. Hello Baby Bok Choy Salad!

Sadly, I am down to the last bowlful of Bok Choy Salad. Yes, 8 heads of baby bok choy gone (GONE!) in less than 2 weeks. I wasn’t bluffing when I told you this salad was amazing!

The last little bowl is safely tucked away (hidden, if I’m being honest) in the back of the frig. Hopefully I’ll get to it before The Girl discovers it. She loves this salad as much as I do.

What The Heck Is Bok Choy And Where Can I Find It?

Depending on where you live, you may know this hearty veggie as pak choy.

Bok choy is a type of Chinese cabbage, consisting of edible, leafy green tops and a crunchy base. It can be eaten raw or cooked.

Available in two sizes – baby and regular. Regular bok choy has dark green leaves with white stems. The baby version is smaller in size and has lighter green leaves.

I prefer to use baby bok choy when it’s available, but you can use either type interchangeably.

Most grocery stores carry bok choy in the produce aisles, near the leafy greens. Even my rural market stocks it regularly.

What Makes Baby Bok Choy Salad Sooo Good?

The combination of baby bok choy, carrots and green onion make for a decent salad on it’s own.

But all that changes when you toss in the crunchy almonds and chow mein noodles. The crunch factor is off the charts!

As if the salad isn’t amazing enough already, the Ginger Sesame Soy Dressing steps up to the party with a combination of savory, tangy Asian flavors. 

Get ready for a flavor bomb of deliciousness!

Bok Choy Salad Serving Suggestions

I love a versatile salad recipe and this one doesn’t disappoint. It’s delicious as a side dish with grilled meats (or any dinner for that matter!).

Add shredded chicken and you have a hearty main dish. Serve with warm bread and fruit to round out the meal.

This is also a great salad for BBQ’s and potluck parties because the greens hold up very well, even after dressing the salad.

You can have this easy, healthy dinner on the table in 15 minutes. Less time than it takes to make a trip through the drive thru!

Baby Bok Choy Salad with Ginger Sesame Soy Dressing is destined to become a family favorite.

Happy Eating!
