Baby Turnip Slaw

When I mentioned I had baby turnips in my current CSA box a couple people told me I had to try them raw. I gave them a taste & they are quite good raw, with a peppery flavor similar to a mild radish. I thought that flavor would play well in a coleslaw.

I was right this did make a nice crunchy slaw & was a great side with some brats on the grill.

Baby Turnip Slaw

12 baby turnips, julienned
3 T mayonnaise
1 t Dijon mustard
1/2 t white wine vinegar
salt & pepper

Stir turnips, mayo, mustard & vinegar together. Season generously with salt & pepper. Chill for at lease an hour before serving to allow flavors to meld.

2 - 3 servings

I'd never think to eat them raw - looks good

This looks great! I love turnips, and I have never had them raw - I gotta try it!

slaw is a really clever use for your turnips, kat! crunch is key for me in a slaw--who wants a limp mess on their barbecue or hot dog?

So creative! I don't know if I've ever even had turnip - maybe roasted with some other veggies but I bet they're great on their own, too!

THis was a great idea. Looks so creamy and I am imagining the taste of it on some Brats!

I made this for tonight's dinner - it was very good when I prepped it and can only get better while it's chilling.

I'd never thought to eat turnips raw until our CSA farmer mentioned his son eating them raw this week. I'm completely converted after tasting these - they're super sweet.

Thanks for this idea! I got little white turnips in our CSA box last week and needed a recipe. I linked to your page here, hope you don't mind....I also added a few other things and used vegenaise instead of mayo. Delicious, and thanks again!
