Warm Bok Choy, Beet and Feta Salad

Recipe by  

"Straying from bok choy's usual Asian flair, this lovely bright pink salad has a rich feta flavor with a fresh clean finish. The bok choy provides a nice crunch while the beets keep the tones earthy, with the feta and garlic to sharpen the flavor."

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Place the beets, 1/4 of the chopped garlic, and the olive oil on a piece of heavy aluminum foil; fold the foil around the beets into a sealed packet.
  2. Roast beets in the preheated oven until easily pierced with a fork, 40 minutes to 1 hour. Let beets cool just until they can be handled, then rub with a paper towel to remove skins. Chop into 1/2-inch cubes; set aside.
  3. Heat the peanut oil and butter in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir bok choy and the remaining garlic together until bok choy is slightly softened but still crunchy, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in the beets and the feta. Serve warm.

The tastes are good, but the family couldn't get past the pink cheese. The beets bled into everything. I think this one is not going to happen again.

Loved this warm salad! I didn't have peanut oil so I used sesame oil instead and it was very good. Will try it again with a little less oil/butter to Save on calories.

Great way to use beets and bok choy. Also very pretty. I used mini bok choy and garnished the dish with the cut off ends - they looked like flowers.

I doubled the recipe and it was enough for a main course for 2. I added a bit more feta though because hubby and I are cheese-aholics lol I also used garlic butter instead of regular and then added just 2 cloves of minced garlic to the pan (don't forget I doubled the recipe). Fantastic :)

I despise bok choy, but it came in my CSA box, so I decided to make use of it. I used one head of regular bok choy, 3 beets and 3 cloves garlic. Knowing that I find bok choy more edible when cooked with bacon, I subbed 2 Tbsp bacon grease for the peanut oil/butter. Used more like 1/2 C cheese and also added three small green onions and about 1.5 Tbsp balsamic vinegar dressing. I found it edible, which says a lot given my hatred for bok choy. Hubby liked it.

Simple dish, yet tasty. I even cheated with whole canned beets and it was still really flavorful.
