Turnip Slaw Recipe

Turnip Slaw Recipe

I found this recipe in a local newspaper when we moved to Arkansas almost 20 years ago. The recipe was said to be so good that even people "burned out" on turnips would like it. I'd never heard of slaw made from turnips, but I tried it and now my husband likes it better than cabbage slaw.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + chilling YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup chopped sweet red pepper
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 cups shredded peeled turnips

Directions

  • 1. In a bowl, combine all ingredients except turnips. Pour over turnips and toss well to coat. Refrigerate several hours for flavors to blend. Yield: 4 servings.
