Veronica's Bok Choy Salad

Here is my sister Veronica's recipe for a delicious salad made with Bok Choy. 
Some of the health benefits of eating Bok Choy are:
  • Studies have shown that Bok Choy can reduce the risk of lung cancer in nonsmokers by 30 percent and in smokers by 69 percent!
  • Bok Choy is a good source of calcium, a nutrient needed to keep our bones, teeth, and joints healthy.
  • This vegetable has been shown to promote good heart health and optimal brain function.
  • Worried about aging? Bok Choy is full of beta-carotene that can be converted to vitamin A to help reduce the signs of aging.
  • Bok Choy is a good source of vitamin C, a nutrient needed to keep our immune system strong.
  • Detoxing? Bok Choy helps the liver in detoxification and protects it from the effects of stress, pollution, and aging factors in our modern environment.
The ingredients for the salad:

Cut up all of the Bok Choy and 3-4 green onions.

Make sure and wash the Bok Choy and Onions real good.

All that healthy green goodness

Next, heat up your crunchy topping.

2 Tablespoons of Brown Sugar
4 Tablespoons of Butter
1/2 cup of Toasted Sesame Seeds

Then add 4 oz. Slivered Almonds and one Package of Ramen Noodles.
Don't use the seasoning in the package.  Crunch the noodles up before opening.
Brown it all together.

Now to make the sauce:
1/2 cup Olive Oil
1/2 cup Red Wine Vinegar
2 Tablespoons of Soy Sauce
1/3 cup white Sugar


To serve.  I place a handful of the Bok Choy and onions on a plate.
Drizzle with a small amount of the sauce, and top with the crunchy topping.


For future meals I store each portion of the salad separately.
