  • 1.5 cups shredded cabbage (I used a blend of green and red)
  • 0.5 cups shredded or grated carrots
  • 1 apple julienned
  • 2 green onions chopped thinly
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar


  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 lb lean ground turkey (if you like it a bit heavier on meat, use 1.5 lbs)
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tbsp hoisin sauce
  • 1 tsp rice wine vinegar


  • 8 large leaves Boston or Butter Lettuce


  • Prepare slaw first – mix shredded cabbage, carrots, apple, and green onions in a large bowl. Toss with sesame oil and rice wine vinegar. Set aside.
  • Heat 1 tbsp sesame oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add ground turkey and cook until almost browned. Add garlic and continue cooking until ground turkey is fully browned and garlic is fragrant.
  • Add hoisin sauce and rice wine vinegar; stir to combine well. Cook for 1-2 more minutes then remove from heat.
  • Set lettuce leaves on plates and fill with ground turkey mixture. Top with cabbage apple slaw and enjoy!
