Turnips, turnips, turnips… all I ever do is roast them and the thermometer is rising… “Grate them raw, into a slaw!” proclaimed Karin – once again shedding a new and delicious light on an old friend. Perhaps it’s the novelty, but I think everyone that has tried this actually prefers it to its cabbage counterpart.
2 medium turnips, trimmed & grated (about 1+1/2 cups)
1 kohlrabi bulb, trimmed & grated (about 1+1/2 cups)
1 bunch radishes, trimmed & grated (about 1 cup)
1/4 cup light mayonnaise
1+1/2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1+1/2 tbsp honey
1 tbsp Dijon Mustard
sea salt and freshly ground pepper
Process all vegetables and mix the dressing. Combine in a large bowl and serve chilled.
Serves 4 as a side.
