Flashback Friday ~Bok Choy Salad

For Flashback Friday I have this vintage photo to share. It just makes me laugh...

Flashing back to a family favorite recipes as well. This is a great salad for a crowd or holiday. Consider it for your Easter table. I promise it will be a hit. The recipe comes from my friend Belinda who is one of the best cooks around. I think you can find it online, but she's the one that introduced it to my family so I give her the credit!

Bok Choy Salad
my friend Belinda

1 Bunch Bok Choy Cabbage
6 Green Onions

Chop bok choy into bite size pieces - use the whole thing. Slice green onions. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

2 pkgs ramen noodles (use the seasoning packet for something else)
1 small package slivered almonds
1 stick butter
2 tsp sesame seeds

Brown crushed noodles and almonds in butter. In the last couple of minutes add the sesame seeds and brown without burning. Drain on paper towels and cook to room temperature. Reserve until ready to serve salad.

3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup vinegar
3/4 cup vegetable oil
2 Tablespoons soy sauce

Combine dressing ingredients in a jar and shake well. Refrigerate and reserve until ready to serve salad. When ready to serve combine topping, salad and dressing then toss. Serve immediately.

If you have a flashback of any kind, Easter or otherwise please add your link below!

Had to chuckle at the photo... Your salad is very similar to the one I will be making for Easter, one of our family's favorites. I'll try to post it after Easter when I have photos..

Salad sounds and looks great!Always have my bok choy slightly cooked, then add some cooked potatoes cut very thinly, seasoned with only salt and a little bit of oil, and served with hard boiled eggs. It's really good...
Love the photo, made me smile, I have to show my kids!!! So funny!
Thank you for visiting, and leaving a kind comment on my blog! Happy Easter!
