Our produce department is bursting with fresh, locally-grown, organic vegetables including salad turnips, from Terramor Farm.
Unlike the classic turnip, it’s soft enough to cut with a butter knife. It is sweet with a touch of a bite like the classic turnip. And the greens are great to eat, too!
Salad turnips can be eaten as you would a radish. Slice thinly and toss in a salad, sprinkle with salt and add to a sandwich or wrap. Or, try a simple recipe like this, adapted from Things I made Today.
- 1 lb salad turnips, cleaned and cut into 1 inch thick wedges, and greens chopped
- 2 tablespoons butter/avocado oil/coconut oil
- splash of white wine vinegar
Melt butter or oil in a heavy pan. Add turnips and cook until nicely browned on all sides. Toss in turnip greens until wilted (couple minutes). Remove from pan and add a dash of salt and vinegar.
