Turn Up the Turnips
Turnip Cole Slaw with Apples: The combination of turnip and apple is really a match made in heaven. The slightly bitter taste of turnips and tart sweetness of the green apples really bring the flavors together. Tie the flavors together with a simple mayonnaise dressing, and it’s ideal for a spring or summer side dish!
Turkey, Lentil, and Orzo Soup with Turnips: “When I came up with the idea for this soup...I thought it was a crazy combination but it turned out so good and heartwarming!”

Asian Style Turnips with Ginger, Chives, and Garlic: This recipe really packs a health punch in every bite! The turnips are marinated in a delicious mixture and garnished with sesame seeds.
Good Ol’ U.S.A. Pork Stew: Can a pork stew be patriotic? I guess, according to this recipe. It’s delicious, and features turnips, sweet potatoes, and apples.
Roasted Root Vegetable Medley: Wolfgang Puck clearly likes turnips, and so do I, so I thought I’d share another one of his recipes. “In winter, while I was growing up in the Austrian village of St. Veit, green vegetables never appeared in my mother’s kitchen. Every vegetable we ate during the cold months came from our sand-filled root cellar.”
