Prep Time 5 mins
Total Time 5 mins
Servings 4 servings


  • 1/2 medium head green cabbage cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt plus more for seasoning
  • 4 oil-packed anchovy fillets coarsely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons unseasoned rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon light soy sauce
  • 4 teaspoons white miso
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Vegetable oil
  • 4 celery stalks thinly sliced on a diagonal
  • 1/2 cup celery leaves
  • 2 scallions green parts only, thinly sliced on a diagonal
  • 1 thinly sliced serrano chile
  • 1 cup cilantro leaves with tender stems
  • 1 cup shredded cooked turkey meat
  • 1/3 cup coarsely chopped roasted salted skin-on peanuts
  • 2 teaspoons black sesame seeds


  • Toss cabbage and ½ tsp. salt in a large bowl. Massage vigorously with your hands until cabbage begins to release water and soften, about 2 minutes (this will both season and tenderize the leaves). Drain; set aside.
  • Mix anchovies, lemon zest, lemon juice, vinegar, soy sauce, miso, and sugar in a large bowl; whisk in oil.
  • Add cabbage, celery and celery leaves, scallions, chile, cilantro, and turkey meat to bowl and toss to combine; season with salt.
  • Serve salad topped with peanuts and sesame seeds.
