Bok choy serves as a peppery alternative to cabbage in this crunchy and creamy slaw. Try it with barbecued chicken.

So good! I make this every time I get bok choy from my CSA. I mostly follow the recipe but have subbed the sour cream with Greek yogurt and always add extra carrots and sometimes add raisins. I slice the bok choy and shred the apples last because they release their juices and so the apples don't brown. (The bok choy juices do water down the dressing a bit so you could slice early and drain the juice but I consider that to be nutrients down the drain). I also prefer sugar over honey for this recipe but both work fine. I soak and rinse the onions in cold water to make them milder.

Best odd slaw ever! I made this for the first time for four women--we loved it so much we ate it all even though it was 8 servings! I did not use sour cream, used 1/3 c real mayo b/c I didn't have the other, and used Greek yogurt (plain) and Greek yogurt (lime).

YUM I love this salad with chicken and walnuts! I've added a little chicken breast for a complete meal. Pros: The dressing is easy to switch ingredients and I've used it for other salads

This was OK, but far from the best slaw recipe I have had. I am not sure if you aren't supposed to use the green part of the bok choy, as mine got soggy quickly. I'm not going to make this again.

i really love this! its so quick to make and is full of flavour. it turns out really sweet and creamy, it goes wonderfully with almost anything! i've made it a good few times now and it always turns out perfectly. i've substituted low fat natural yoghurt for the sour cream a few times too and the dressing isnt as thick, but it tastes almost identical. definitely recommend this!
