Turnip Slaw

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.
