  • 2 cups kale shredded
  • 2 cups red cabbage shredded
  • 1 cucumber julienned
  • 1/2 inch fresh ginger grated
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 3 T. oil
  • 2 T. lime juice
  • 1 T. brown sugar
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 4 oz. mushrooms sliced
  • 3 sprigs cilantro chopped
  • 20 Asian Turkey Meatballs


  • Toss the kale, cabbage, and cucumber sticks together.
  • Combine the ginger, garlic, oil, lime juice, brown sugar, and salt for the dressing. Stir or shake until completely combined.
  • Place kale mixture in serving bowl or individual bowls and top with mushrooms, cilantro, and meatballs. Drizzle with dressing and serve.


Because kale is tougher than lettuce, it holds up under the dressing very well - you can dress the salad ahead of time if you want the kale and cabbage to soften a little.
