Recipe: Turnip Greens Salad
For a hard core salad gal like myself to “discover” a new green, it is quite an event. If you like arugula, you are gonna love this. If you can’t find satsumas where you live you can substitute it with any sweet tangerine or orange. The greens are bitter/peppery so you want something sweet and refreshing you offset the strong flavor. I’m hooked!
- 1 bunch fresh turnip greens – washed and dried
- 1/2 lemon – juiced, seeds removed
- 1Tbsp.toasted sesame oil
- 1Tbsp. Braggs amino acid
- 1 clove finely minced garlic
- drizzle (about 1 tsp) of raw local honey
- 1 satsuma peeled, sectioned and sliced in half
- shake of hemp seeds to taste
- Slice turnip greens from top to bottom in 1″ strips. Discard (or use tomorrow for juicing) the bottom 4-6 inches of the greens
- Toss in a large bowl with other ingredients. Depending on the size of your bunch of greens, you might need to adjust the oil and Braggs amount. Remember, both are strong and a little bit goes a long way.
- Because the greens are peppery and the Braggs tasts salty, you
DON’T need sea salt or pepper on this. Serve immediately.
