For a few days last week, the sun came out and the temperature rose above 40 degrees - so Salad Season officially started in New Hampshire. Nevermind that it was 12 when I got up this morning - the daffodils and chives are peeking up, and the worst of winter is over!
There's something wonderful about this watery, mild green - it satisfies the crunch factor and goes beautifully with all sorts of add-ins ; in this case I made a mildly garlic and fresh orange and lemon juice dressing, then threw in a few plump mandarin orange sections for a little zing. And the other good thing? Bok choy is usually inexpensive - I paid $1.49 for a large bunch.
