This hearty sandwich is a great way to use leftover dark turkey meat, which stands up well to the strongly-flavored dressing, made from rice vinegar, green onions, lime juice, and zesty spices. A slightly off-dry Riesling is a great match for the sandwich's intense flavors.

How to Make It

Step 1
1

In a bowl, mix cabbage and carrots with 1/4 cup rice vinegar, the salt, and sugar; let stand about 30 minutes.

Step 2
2

In a food processor or blender, combine remaining 1/4 cup rice vinegar with green onions, lime juice, ginger, garlic, and five-spice powder. Whirl until smooth. Pour mixture into a bowl. Add turkey and mix to coat.

Step 3
3

Split baguette sections or bolillos lengthwise almost all the way through, leaving halves attached at one side. Spread about 1 tsp. chili paste on 1 cut side of each. Mound turkey mixture on top, then add on cabbage mixture and cilantro leaves.
