Sesame Bok Choy Apple Slaw with Baby Bella Dressing


Sesame Bok Choy Apple Slaw with Baby Bella Mushroom Dressing from

 When you don’t have exactly what you think you need for a new dish…sometimes what you do have will surprise you.  

   I needed to use up a small bag of Baby Bella Mushrooms from my last produce order from From the Farmer.  But I was making a slaw dish with the last of my Bok Choy from the same lot.  Why not?  I made up some delicious slaw dressing using the pureed mushrooms mixed in with traditional slaw seasonings.  No compliant about the nutrition and taste in this side dish.  The Baby Bellas creamed up in the food processor to make a deliciously lite and tangy sauce for my slaw. The color was a tad bit untraditional for slaw.  But I got over that when I took my first fork full.  A new way to make mayo for us here.  

If mushrooms in your slaw just doesn’t do it for you, I have several other summer slaws that may light up your grilled corn or veggie burgers.  My idea here is to use your fresh vegetables when they’re ripe and ready.  And if you come up with a new way to encorporate those flavors to your meals, even better for your and your body.

Have a great weekend ya’ll!

    Another amazing recipe with amazing flavors. Gosh. I have never tried bok choy but I’m so intrigued now to and I LOVE that dressing with the celery seed and dill, reminds me kind of a ranch. I’m obsessed with sesame seeds too….this has all of some of my favorite flavors. Dang, another one I have to print out, haha!

      Thx Brandi. It’s kinda like a celery stalk that married a Swiss chard….kinda. Get baby bok choy if you can cause it’s more tender.
      You’re like me. …not enough meals in the day to make everything I want to 😉

    My partner bought a bag of organic bok choy earlier that week and boy they were crunchy and delicious! I’ve never had raw bok choys in my salads. My mother keeps saying that steamed bok choy is good for you – it will hurt your stomach if you eat it raw. I don’t think I believe her at all, I think bok choy can be eaten raw anytime, especially with a lovely dressing of yours!

      I haven’t seen anything on line about not eating it raw. It’s just like cabbage. You’ll get a little bloat from it if you combine it with some fruits but I didn’t have any problem with it raw with the apples. So, hope your Mom is just incorrect on this one 🙂
