Cooking time:          0 minutes

Yields:                           3 people

 

Ingredients: 

              5 stalks of bok choy, chopped
              1 granny smith apple, sliced
              ½ small red onion, thinly sliced
              ½ cup alfalfa sprouts (optional)

Dressing:

              2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar (or lemon juice)
              2 teaspoons honey or brown rice syrup
              1 teaspoon ground coriander 
              1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
              ¼ cup olive oil
             Salt and black pepper to taste

 

Directions: 

  • Combine all ingredients in a bowl.
  • Prepare dressing in a bowl or shaker container and mix well.
  • Pour dressing over salad.
  • Eat immediately. If you are going to serve the salad later on, add the apples just before serving to prevent them from browning.

Notes: 

  • Try cabbage instead of bok choy or carrot slices instead of onion.
  • Add fresh herbs such as cilantro, parsley, mint or scallions.
  • Double the dressing ingredients and use on leftover grains
