Tangy but without the dreaded mayo

Tangy but without the dreaded mayo

This is a quick simple salad that can be prepared earlier and served cold or served hot. Served cold the dressing has more time to flavor the bok choy.

    Wow, Greg… that is a very interesting salad… I never though of making a dressing with coconut milk, and now I am salivating just thinking about it (the Brazilian side is showing its face)

    I might have to use something else in place of onions, though – hubby cannot eat them…

    very nice recipe, I am pinning it…

  2. That’s creative!
    How much bok-choi? All we can find right now is ‘baby’…

    So much of this recipe is unknown to me, Greg. Sure would like to give it a try, though, especially the coconut dressing. And I’ve a new bottle of fish sauce waiting to be opened.

    Mmmm! Definitely served cold would be my preference…with hot peppers.
