The first time I tried Baby Bok Choy Salad, I was at my friend Melissa’s house. I watched her make it (somewhat skeptically because I was just a Foodie-in-Training back then), but one bite and I was a full-blown bok-choy convert.

Once you start eating this Baby Bok Choy Salad, you might do a double-take and wonder if you’re eating Chinese takeout. I’m kind of exaggerating, but not really. The flavor profiles are similar and this salad is just as addictive!

I never thought my kids would eat bok choy, but they are obsessed with this salad! It's one of my most popular recipes at potlucks and literally tastes like Chinese takeout in salad form.The original recipe was her came from Melissa’s grandma and was prepared with regular bok choy. I started using baby bok choy because it was easier to find.

And it’s fun to say: Baby Bok Choy.

If you can’t find Baby Bok Choy, substitute the full-size version. It’s the same species but harvested later. For either variety of bok choy, look for plants that have firm stalks and are free of brown discolorations.

How to Clean and Store Baby Bok Choy

The easiest way to clean Baby Bok Choy is to treat it like a bunch of celery. Trim off and discard the end of the bulb and separate the stalks. Wash the stalks in cool water, carefully brushing away any sand or dirt that remains.

Slice the stalks in the same manner as you would slice celery, using the entire stalk including the leaves at the top.

The Crunchies

This salad gets some extra crunch from ramen noodles and almonds. You don’t need the ramen seasoning packet, so discard or save for another use.

To ensure even browning of the ramen, crumble it as much as possible. Once you add it to the pan, you’ll quickly see any large pieces that remain. I usually take them out and mash them separately until they are uniform in size with the rest.

You have options on almonds. I use the blanched, sliced kind (without skins), but skin-on almonds or slivered almonds are fine.

Healthy Options

To make this salad gluten-free, leave out the ramen and sub GF soy sauce. You could also add more vegetables inspired by your favorite local Buddha’s Feast such as shredded carrots, cabbage, or bell peppers.
