Ginger Salad

Ginger salad is nearly as popular as tea-leaf salad in Myanmar and is just as crunchy. This version uses purchased pickled ginger; i.e., the same ginger on your sushi tray. This healthy salad recipe also has the nontraditional addition of romaine lettuce, which gives it a lighter bite.

Baby Bok Choy with Sherry Vinaigrette

While sherry vinegar and Dijon may seem like unconventional ingredients, in this healthy Chinese-style stir-fry recipe, they combine to impart a mild Chinese-mustard-like flavor to the dish. It's so good, you just may find yourself using the sauce on all your favorite sautéed vegetables.
