Turnip Salad with Yogurt Poppy Seed Dressing

Turnip Salad with Yogurt Poppy Seed Dressing


1 bunch Hakurai Salad Turnips

½ bag of fresh mixed baby Greens and leafy herbs of choice (OR use the Turnip Greens!)

1 Lemon

½ tsp Chili Flakes

Salt and Pepper

½ cup Plain Yogurt

4 Green Onions

Olive Oil

¼ cup Poppy Seeds

Optional: slice your favorite pear and add it too, or even apple goes well in this salad!


Use a mandoline, or chop very thinly, to slice the Turnips. Soak slices in ice water for twenty minutes, then drain.

Chop all your greens and add them to a bowl with lemon juice, chili flakes, ½ tsp salt, black pepper, and toss. Add the yogurt and toss again. Add the scallions, ¼ cup olive oil, and turnips, toss again and serve with poppy seeds sprinkled on top.

This dish can change flavor depending on your choice of baby greens and herbs. Cilantro, mint, parsley, and chives can all add a different twist to a delish veggie side!
