['2 red or green Thai chiles, lightly smashed', '2 garlic cloves, lightly smashed', '1/2 cup fresh lime juice', '1/2 cup fish sauce', '2 tablespoons palm sugar or light brown sugar', '1 medium bunch kale, ribs and stems removed, leaves thinly sliced', '2 celery stalks, thinly sliced on a diagonal', '1 small bunch scallions, thinly sliced on a diagonal', '3/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves with tender stems', '3/4 cup fresh mint leaves', '1/2 cup fresh Thai or sweet basil leaves', '1/2 cup sev or unsalted, roasted sunflower seeds and/or pumpkin seeds', 'MSG (optional; for serving)', 'Chili oil (optional; for serving)']

Whisk chiles, garlic, lime juice, fish sauce, palm sugar, and 2 tablespoons water in a large bowl.
Let sit 5 minutes; remove chiles and garlic.
Add kale, celery, scallions, cilantro, mint, and basil to dressing and toss to coat (salad should be very heavily dressed).
