When I opened the latest fluorescent green tote box full of local organic vegetables and fruit I was immediately drawn to a bundle of dark green leaves. Tatsoi. What the hell is tatsoi? Thank goodness my adventure into tatsoi territory was guided by the clever recipe suggestions that come with the veggies.
This was a salad with the tatsoi, lettuce, orange, avocado, green onion and English cucumber. For the dressing, I eyeballed EVOO, rice wine vinegar, gluten-free soy sauce, tahini and a bit of the juice from the orange into a glass container. Easier than whisking and any leftover dressing is already in a sealable container! I saw the layers in the narrow jar and took a picture of it, I thought it was neat.
The tatsoi (from Gundermann Acres) reminded me of bok choy, like a miniature version of it. I always wondered what was in some of those stir-fry dishes, I think this was it. Yum!
