In the summer when there are a lot of fresh vegetables in our garden and at the farmer’s market, one of my favorite ways to enjoy fresh summer vegetables is in a vegetable slaw. Many times when you hear “slaw recipe,” you automatically think of coleslaw drenched in a heavy mayonnaise like dressing. While that’s certainly a great way to enjoy cabbage, there are a lot of slaw recipes that use vegetables other than cabbage (like this bok choy slaw recipe) and don’t include mayonnaise. Mayonnaise is fairly high in fat and isn’t necessarily something I want to eat regularly. Commercially prepared mayonnaise generally has canola oil which I try to avoid.

This Bok Choy Slaw recipe is a delicious, crunchy slaw that includes bok choy, carrots and scallions.  Nothing in the recipe is cooked so it is the perfect summer dish when you don’t want to heat up the oven.  There is also no dairy/eggs in the recipe so it’s suitable for those with allergies.

    This recipe looks very cool and refreshing. I have never tried bok choy, or at least knowingly. There are a few Asian veggies I love in my Chinese medley dish that I don't know exactly what they are. Maybe the celery-like one?
