PAK CHOI SALAD (extra, extra healthy salad)

The good stuff:

  • Pak choi- I enjoy it cooked as much as I enjoy it raw! It’s such a delicious leafy green, especially uncooked. I find its taste sits somewhere between romaine and kale- simply delicious!
  • Here in Jamaica, pak choi is very affordable and on top of that, it’s highly nutritious. In fact, we don’t talk about its health benefits enough. It’s a fantastic source of Vitamin A, C , Potassium & Calcium. It’s high water content also means it’s going to keep your skin hydrated all while feeding it with beauty nutrients.
  • And finally, I find it’s one of the easiest leafy greens to wash 🙂 Bonus points for ease of use.

You’ll need:

  • Pak choi, leaves only, chopped
  • Cabbage, shredded
  • Carrots, grated
  • Cranberries
  • Almonds
  • Herb of choice (I used fresh cilantro & dried mint)
  • Olive oil
  • Apple cider vinegar
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pinch of brown sugar

The process:

  • Mix all ingredients together. Adjust flavour by tasting as you go 🙂
