Disappearing Baby Bok Choy Salad

This tasty salad lives up to its name. It's a great go-to recipe on weeknights because it comes together in minutes, and is so delicious, it disappears just as quickly! Serve as a side or over rice to make it a larger meal. We also think this would be a great filling for pot stickers.

For a little extra kick, finely chop up (or mince) a clove or two of garlic and whisk well into the dressing and let meld 10-15 minutes before dressing the salad. Have turnips? Slice those thinly and toss them in the salad too.

Recipe Roundup: Rhubarb

Get it while you can! Rhubarb is a sure sign of spring, but it won't last long! The red stalks of this veggie may resemble celery, but they have a naturally tart—and we mean tart!—flavor. Its tartness is why it is most often enjoyed cooked with sweeteners, and famously paired with strawberries.
