Did you ever think to eat raw turnip?

Today I knew I had to do something with the turnip we got in the last share but I didn't feel like making stew or roasting them. It occurred to me that I could try making a slaw with them and guess what? It was decent and light and didn't feel so much like a winter vegetable this way. I kept it simple but any dressing with a nice bright flavor would work well on this.


Turnip Slaw

Two large turnips
one large carrot

Shred and mix.

Dressing:

2 T vegetable oil
2 T white vinegar
1/4 tsp fresh ginger
Salt
Sugar

Rating: Good. People came back for seconds except for Sam who spilled it all over the floor.

Was Sam's spilling an accident or a subtle restaurant review??

My turnip recipe: cube it, microwave it, and season it with butter and pumpkin pie spice.
