Yum. Yuuuuum. Bok choy is the current salad obsession. It's got great crunch and a slight bite, a poor man's arugula. For a quick salad at lunch or a supper salad, I add whatever is on hand, some times veering toward more vegetables but more often to salad like the photograph with fruit (tangerine sections are great), a crumbly cheese (a fresh cheese like goat cheese or a good blue) and toasted walnuts. It's filling, it's satisfying. It makes for a great salad to share, even a supper salad.
NUTRITION NOTES For years and years, I've really had only one one favorite salad dressing recipe. Now I have two: this homemade creamy vinaigrette is it! Yes, it's made with cream. But for four servings, the dressing contributes only 18 calories, that's only one Weight Watchers points. For one serving, a substantial supper salad, the dressing contributes 72 calories, in Weight Watchers points, that means 1 point.

BOK CHOY SALAD with CREAMY VINAIGRETTE
Time to table: varies with ingredients
Serves 4 with generous side salads
BOK CHOY SALAD
Bok choy, trimmed, chopped - 8 ounces
Fresh goat cheese - 1 ounce
Toasted walnuts - 1 ounce
Fresh fruit - 1/2 apple, a tangerine, etc.
Chopped green onion - 3 or 4
2 tablespoons cream, whisked until pillowy (this takes a minute or two, it's also easier starting with more cream but since the dressing doesn't keep well, make only enough for the current meal)
1 tablespoon rice vinegar (or lemon juice or another vinegar)
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon good mustard
Combine just before serving.
