Oriental Turkey Salad

In the summertime, I love eating salads for dinner! They are so refreshing, and there is little to no cooking involved so you don't have to heat up the kitchen!

This recipe is from Cooking with Kare Volume 1. I have never made a salad solely with cabbage before. This specific vinaigrette flavor with the cabbage was awesome! The red pepper flakes gave a great kick to an otherwise sweet dressing. We put the dressing on in single servings, so we could keep the salad to eat a second day. If you're looking for  a new kind of salad with homemade dressing, I highly recommend it! 4/5 stars!
