Honey Ginger Bok-choy Salad by Jason

I’ve been getting some questions on what to do with asian greens and peppergrass from the CSA here at W. Rogowski Farm. So I decided I would make a salad including six items from this weeks CSA: bok-choy, peppergrass, swiss chard, scallions, tomatillos, and radishes.

Salad Ingredients:

  • 1 bunch swiss chard
  • about 1 lb bok-choy, tot-soi, or mustard greens (all of the mustard family and pretty interchangeable)
  • 1 bunch peppergrass
  • 3 radishes
  • 4 tomatillos
  • 2 scallions
  • pinch of shaved parmesan cheese (garnish)
  • pinch of sunflower seeds (garnish)

Dressing Ingredients:

  • Roasted Garlic/ or 2 tsp garlic powder (but whats better than roasted garlic?)
  • 1/2 C sesame oil
  • 1/2 C rice vinegar
  •  3 tbsp honey
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • nub of ginger (finely chopped)
  • salt to taste

First you are going to want to roast your garlic, what I do is chop the top of the garlic head so you can see all the cloves, place it on a piece of aluminum foil, drizzle oil or butter over it and sprinkle with salt and pepper (I prefer cayenne), wrap in foil and toss in oven/ toaster oven for 30-45 min at 375 degrees. Once garlic is cooked, let stand until at room temperature.

While the garlic is roasting you can prep your veggies. Chop your greens, scallions and peppergrass and toss in bowl.
