Your rating: None Average: 4 (39 votes)

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



READER'S COMMENT:
"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. "
