Salad- Turnip Slaw
1/4 cup chopped sweet red pepper (we have used green, and we also buy bags of frozen chopped peppers in the winter and just use some of that)
1/4 cup green onions, thinly snipped with scissors
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon sugar or honey
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
4 cups of grated turnips- peel them (remember to slice the tops to grow more turnip greens) and grate them (I use my food processor)
Mix all ingredients except the turnips, then pour the mixture over your grated turnips and mix well. This serves four.
Ever so slightly steam the grated turnips- just a minute or two. They should still be crisp-tender, with the emphasis on crisp. Combine apple cider vinegar honey, salt, and a tablespoon of whey with the grated turnips the day before serving. After soaking the turnips in the vinegar mixture overnight (or longer), stir in remaining ingredients.
