For the dressing:
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 teaspoons agave
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • 1/2 inch piece of ginger, finely minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
For the salad:
  • 6 heads of bok choy about 680g, sliced
  • 2 carrots, ribboned using a potato peeler
  • 1/4 cup toasted almond slices
  • 6 green onions chopped
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  1. To make the dressing, mix all of the dressing ingredients together in a small bowl.
  2. To assemble the salad, add the bok choy and carrots to a large bowl. Pour over the dressing and toss well to combine. You can serve it right away, but the flavours get even better if you let it sit for 20 to 30 minutes, tossing every now and then. When ready to serve, garnish with the toasted almond slices, green onions, and sesame seeds.
