You can substitute any favorite lettuce you like in this recipe. If you don’t like Bok Choy, feel free to substitute with baby spinach, spring mix, or arugula to name a few.

Can I use any kind of tomatoes?

Of course! While grape tomatoes are a great addition to the salad, you can use any type of tomato that you already have at home.

Will nuts taste good when added to this salad?

Yes! Nuts will give this salad an added crunch, which goes great with the strawberries, blueberries, and lettuce. You can use chopped peanuts, walnuts, or even almonds.
