With a healthy dose of turnips in this week's share, I thought it might be useful to share with some you some ideas for how to use them in the summer months -- particularly, recipes that don't require long periods of roasting or stewing. With that, here are six ideas for using turnips in the summer!
Raw, in salads -- Slice them thinly and add them to salads uncooked, just as you would a radish.
Pickled turnips -- Make some quick-pickled turnips and eat them on their own or on sandwiches.
Turnip Kimchi -- This is another take on pickled turnips with slightly different flavors.
Turnip and Kholrabi Slaw -- We made this a few years ago and loved it.
Japanese Turnips with Miso -- Requires more cooking than the recipes above, but looks delicious.
Grilled Turnips with Garlic -- Simple and tasty.
