Grilled Bok Choy with Spicy Asian Dressing



Bok choy is a delicious relative of cabbage and is often referred to as Chinese Cabbage. The small, baby bok choy are very tender and add a satisfying crunch to stir fries and salads. Since people are grilling all sort of vegetables these days, I decided to throw it on the grill and see what happened. The results were wonderful and had a lightly charred flavor that paired so well with a spicy Asian dressing. It’s an easy and light side dish for summer.
