    Spicy Cabbage Salad with Turkey and Peanuts


    I never thought I could look forward to eating raw cabbage, but this Spicy Cabbage Salad with Turkey and Peanuts changed that! When I was a child, the cabbage I ate in the kindergarten was always an overcooked mushy mess. It was only when I started experimenting in the kitchen that I realised what a delicious wonder vegetable it really is! And the best way to showcase it is when it is crisp and crunchy in a salad like this one.

    Start by mixing the cabbage leaves with salt and rubbing them together for about 2 minutes – the salt will both season the leaves and make them more tender. This process also encourages the flavor to emerge. Make a dressing from anchovies, lemon zest and juice, rice vinegar, soy sauce, white miso, sugar and oil. Mix the salad ingredients with the dressing and that’s it! Simple and delicious!

    Assemble the salad


    Add the cabbage to the serving bowl along with 4 thinly sliced celery stalks, ½ cup of celery leaves, 2 sliced scallions, 1 serrano chile, 1 cup of cilantro leaves and 1 cup of turkey meat. Toss well to combine and season with salt.

    Brought this to work with me for lunch and it helped keep my stomach satisfied all day till I could get my hands on the fish fillet haha.

    Not very filling but it's okay, just prefer the stuffed cabage instead since that holds longer.

    Baylor Bayliss

    Kinda spicy but only a little due to the chili, it's great though and perfect for a small snack or lunch.
