Bok Choy Oriental Salad

This Bok Choy Oriental Salad recipe was given to me by my friend Barb (head of table). She brought it to a fondue dinner party several years ago and it's become kind of a tradition ever since. You can see it in the bottom left corner of this photo.

Bok Choy Oriental Salad

Before eating this salad, I had only tasted bok choy in cooked Chinese recipes so I was surprised at how good it is raw. I've grown to depend on this recipe, especially for brunches and potlucks, because it makes alot.

How To Cut Bok Choy

When I first started making this recipe, I had no idea how to cut bok choy. It is very similar to celery except that it has more leafy greens all of which is used in this salad.

This video, courtesy of eHow, shows how to cut up a bok choy.
