Apple Bok Choy Salad

This recipe was brought to our attention by Suzanne Hutchinson, one of our members.  She says: “My husband never liked it [bok choy] when we would receive it through the fall/winter.  He never liked it when I did a quick stir fry for dinner using it up.  I finally took the time to plow through a bunch of new recipes to try to find one he liked rather than discard the bok choy which I would really hate to do.  We found this recipe early on in our search. It was especially nice when we have your delicious carrots too.  When I have almond milk, I use that, but nowadays I substitute milk without any loss of flavor.”

Note that later in the week, we may substitute Cabbage for Bok Choy.  The cabbage will be good instead of bok choy in this salad.
