goodbye sweet summer: bok choy salad

 

If you like salads with crunch, this one is for you. The leafy texture combined with the stalk’s crunch makes bok choy one of my favorite greens. Add a tangy, sweet dressing and toss with toasted ramen noodles and slivered almonds, and you’ve got yourself one heck of a salad!
