Anytime Salad

Comment on this recipe

"During the holidays, I soak jicama in red food coloring and add with the Ramen noodles. Makes a nice contrast with the bok choy.

"30 minutes preparation to chop salad items, 10 minutes to mix dressing"

Ingredients

1 bunch bok choy, shredded
1 cup chopped celery
3 cups chopped green onion
1 cup chopped jicama
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
Pepper, to taste
Ramen noodles

DRESSING:
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons white vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons parsley (fresh or dried)

Instructions

In a large bowl, mix all salad ingredients except Ramen noodles. Shake all dressing ingredients together in pint-size jar and add to salad mixture. Add Ramen noodles just before serving so they're crispy.
