Warm Bok Choy Salad

Oh my goodness I could eat this all day! Quick, simple, delicious, everything I love about food! Its really nice for summer time because you're grilling outside instead of heating up your house. If you're having trouble finding miso paste, I found mine behind the counter of the sushi station at my local grocery store.

Serves 2

For the dressing:
- 1 tbs miso paste
- 1 clove minced garlic
- 1/2 tsp brown sugar
- 1 tsp sesame oil
- 1/2 tsp rice vinegar
- 2 green onions chopped
- 1 tbs white toasted sesame seeds

Combine miso paste, garlic, brown sugar and 1/4 cup water in a small saucepan over medium heat
Stir until mixture is gently simmering and miso is completely dissolved
Remove from heat and stir in oil, vinegar, green onions, and sesame seeds

For vegetables:
- 4 baby bok choy sliced in half lengthwise
- 1 small sweet onion cut into 1/4 inch rings and halved
- drizzle of soy sauce

Preheat a gas grill to medium
Generously spray a grill rack with cooking spray
Place bok choy cut side down on grill rack
Grill for about 1 minute then add onion
Spray veggies with more cooking spray and drizzle with soy sauce
Cook for about 5 more minutes until veggies are lightly charred but still crunchy

Divide the veggies among 2 bowls and top each bowl with half of the dressing
Dig in and enjoy!
