For the Grilled/Seared Bok Choy...

  • 8 heads of large bok choy (or 16 heads of baby bok choy)
  • 8 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt

For the Grapefruit Basil Salsa...

  • ½ cup fresh basil, roughly chopped
  • ¼ cup almonds, roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 grapefruits, (peeled) one roughly chopped, and one sliced into segments for garnish


  • Slice the bok choy in half, lengthwise. Brush the inside portion of the sliced bok choy with 1/2 teaspoon olive oil (you will have 16 halves of bok choy - each brushed with 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil). Sprinkle with salt.
  • Heat a grill pan or sauté pan over high heat. Once hot, add bok choy to the pan with the oil-brushed side touching the pan. Heat for 30 seconds to one minute, until golden brown. Remove from pan and let rest on a plate.
  • Place basil, almonds, olive oil, salt, and roughly chopped grapefruit in a food processor. Pulse until finely chopped - this should resemble a salsa consistency.
  • Slice the second grapefruit into segments.
  • Serve each person 4 halves of grilled/seared bok choy with 1/4 of the Grapefruit Basil Salsa recipe and fresh grapefruit segments.
