This is one of our family favorite salad recipes. Fresh bok choy is mixed with an oriental-flavored dressing spiced with Ginger Root Powder & Garlic Granules.  But the key to this great salad is the crunchy topping made with toasted Sesame Seeds, almonds and Chinese noodles. It's so good!  Make it for your next picnic or barbecue and watch it quickly disappear.
