Grilled Bok Choy with Sesame Vinaigrette - Grilling Time Side Dish Salad

Last week I had a themed Asian dinner made on the grill... Starting with some fantastic Korean Style Grilled Beef Short Ribs as the main course; I selected two more exotic unusual side dishes.  Especially unusual since these were cooked on the grill.

The Scallion Pancakes were equally fantastic.  I have always loved them as a take out menu add on; but they are very easy to do and grill up perfectly!

So now I pondered a vegetable or a salad.  This Bok Choy recipe serves both.  Bok Choy is sort of a cross between a Turnip and Cabbage.  the stalk has plenty of flavor.  The green edges are not only colorful but have the greens/salad flavor you need for this recipe.

The taste is bumped up by grilling.  Brings out the natural sugars in the vegetable.  All things combined, made for a beautiful plate of food and a wonderful taste experience!

OK... Here's what I did...

Grilled Bok Choy
with Sesame Vinaigrette

  • 1 Large Stalk Bok Choy, separated
  • 1/4 Cup Rice Vinegar
  • 1 tsp Sesame Oil
  • 1 Clove Garlic, Fine Mince
  • 1 tsp Fresh minced Ginger
  • 1 TBS Dijon Mustard
  • 1 Pinch each Salt and Pepper
Cooking Directions
  1. Combine all ingredients except the Bok Choy
  2. Whisk until well combined
  3. Use half the Vinaigrette to brush on the raw Bok Choy
  4. Over high direct heat, place each separated rib of Bok Choy on the grill. Grill for only a couple of minutes to heat the salad, flip when edges of the greens start to char.
  5. Repeat with flipped side
  6. Remove from grill, Pour remaining vinaigrette over the now cooked Bok CHoy
  7. Serve WARM and ENJOY!
