This seems like an odd mix of ingredients, but it's a great salad with a sweet and slightly sour flavor.

I added the picture. My recipe has carrots which were cooked with the turnips and I didn't peel the apples. The first time I made it as written but it was just so bland looking but it wasn't bland. Quite delicious. I did cut the sugar by half. Read More

I needed a recipe for turnips and this turned out great. My husband liked it and didn't even know it had turnips in it until I told him. I added less than half the sugar that the recipe called for and it was still surprising sweet and tangy! Read More

I thought turnips were just for stews. Then they showed up in my farm share and in 90 degree weather I just wasn't in a stew mood! This attracted me for its uniqueness. It was amazingly delicious! The family loved it. I mentioned it to coworkers so then had to bring them some to taste--it was inhaled! Can't wait for a potluck so I can make this and surprise everyone! Read More

I've never had turnips before and got 2 from a co-op. I wanted a summer friendly dish. Not sure what size the turnips should be but I had a med & large one and it seemed to be the right amount for the recipe. I added 2 more slices of pineapple & reduced the sugar. I thought it was a unique good salad for the summer. Read More

This is a great use of turnips. I used 1/2 the sugar and added 3 tablespoon of greek yogurt and a 1/4 teaspoon of red pepper flakes. Read More

I have never been a fan of turnips but had some I wanted to use. This recipe was delicious and has turned me into a fan of turnips. Will definitely make this again. I did add carrots with the turnips as I cooked them. We do not like soft mushy vegetables so only cooked them about 10-15 minutes. Thank you for this recipe. Read More
