Baby Bok Choy Salad

What does it mean bok choy

Bok choy means “small white vegetables”. They are part of the Brassicaceae family. It is a leafy small kind of cabbage. They become tender when you cooked them. We affectionately call them baby bok choy!

Can you eat bok choy raw

Yes you can eat bok choy raw. Just chopped them finely and add it into your salad. If you eat your cabbage raw you will keep a higher level of vitamin C and K. However I prefer them cooked because their taste become softer and the bok choy become tender.
