Chinese Turkey Salad

Recipe courtesy Aida Mollencamp

2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger
1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
4 cups coarsely shredded cooked turkey
1/2 small head iceberg lettuce, halved lengthwise and thinly shredded (about 4 cups)
1/2 small head napa cabbage, cored, and thinly shredded (about 4 cups)
2 cups snow peas, cut into 1-inch pieces on bias
1 cup mung bean sprouts
1 medium red bell pepper, stemmed, seeded, and cut into matchsticks
1/3 cup thinly sliced scallions
1 medium carrot, peeled, halved lengthwise, and thinly sliced on the bias
1/2 cup roughly chopped fresh cilantro leaves
1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted
2 tablespoons white sesame seeds, toasted

In a large bowl, whisk together soy sauce, honey, vinegar, and ginger until honey is dissolved. Whisking constantly, add oils in a slow stream until completely incorporated. Taste and adjust flavor, as desired.

Add turkey, toss to thoroughly coat, and let sit 5 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and toss again to combine.

Serves 6 to 8.
