If you like to eat turnips (Iím talking about the root vegetable and not turnip greens), then here is a different way to prepare them. Try making a salad with them. Clean and peel them and boil until they are tender. It doesnít usually take them long to cook, depending on their size. Cut into cubes and make a salad following the same recipe youíd use for a traditional potato salad but instead, substitute potatoes with turnips. I did that over the weekend and it was a nice new twist to a vegetable that I truly enjoy. If you arenít a huge fan of turnips, I recommend you at least buy one or two and try this out. I think youíll b e quite surprised. A little imagination can help you create some wonderful meals.

    I like to eat them in small portions that are well disguised in soup. emoticon

    I have never eaten a turnip. I am not sure why other than the fact that I wasn't sure how to prepare them. But, the salad you made sounds interesting. I love potato salad but haven't made or eaten it in a while because it's pretty high calorie. I may have to try your suggestion.

Especially raw, sliced SUPR thin in a salad or used to dip or cover with spreads. Peanut or almond butter works swell too.

    Sounds interesting, Will! I would never have thought of doing that. BTW, I'm learning to really love greens and have been experimenting. I'm growing Brussels sprouts this summer, and I pruned away the big paddle-shaped lower leaves, and decided to use them. I prepared them following a Braised Collard Greens recipe from VegWeb, and they were very good.
